2021 Virtual National Gathering
June 24 @ 7:00 pm - June 27 @ 6:00 pm EDT
The National Gathering has concluded.
Deep gratitude to all who participated, volunteered, led sessions, and to everyone who comes to this growing Table.
Dr. Joy DeGruy, author of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome, was our keynote speaker on opening night. Yeye Luisah Teish, teacher, dancer, storyteller, high priestess, and author, was our featured speaker on Friday. Alex Trapps-Chabala, historian, genealogist, and founder of KinConnector, was our featured speaker on Sunday. This was a different type of National Gathering since we gathered “virtually” rather than in person. There were multiple presentations, breakout sessions, and opportunities to connect with fellow CTTT members in both structured and unstructured settings. There was a strong focus on launching and sustaining local groups, as well as on Linked Descendants, Reparations, Genealogy, and many additional tools for Taking America Beyond the Legacy of Enslavement (TABLE).
Everyone is invited to watch the Virtual Talent Show on the CTTT YouTube page! A wonderful array of talented presenters…
