Truth-Telling as Healing: How We Can Answer Dr. King’s Call
Dr. King declared, “A man dies when he refuses to take a stand for that which is true.” But standing for the truth – or even just facing it – can be uncomfortable, so why do it?
Nurturing Diversity Partners, a leading local equity education firm, sees recognizing the hard truths of American history as an essential step towards racial repair, reconciliation, and healing. In this interactive, multimedia presentation, they explore the questions: How can truth lead to healing, what truths must we face, how is truth now being acknowledged in our country, and how might Dr. King and other truth tellers inspire and guide our actions?
