National Day of Racial Healing Special Event hosted by Virginia Affiliate Groups: Social-Activist Singer-Songwriter Crys Matthews in CONCERT!

January 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EST

The National Day of Racial Healing (NDRH) was originated in 2017 under W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation efforts, which serves as a community and national based process to determine and bring about transformational and sustainable change in addition to talking about the historical and contemporary effects of racism in U.S. society.

We’re so excited that CRYS MATTHEWS said, “YES” to our invitation to be our very special musical guest for the NDRH this year.

We believe that this concert will give you the joy and the strength to move into the new year with passion, resolve and courage. Crys is known for – in her words – “creating music to inspire and encourage, to change hearts, not minds.” We believe it is essential to bring about racial healing, in part by making healthy change in our community. If systems and structures are to be transformed for the long haul, the people who maintain those systems must first be transformed. Each of us needs to see in new ways.

This event is free and open to the public. A suggested donation of $50 (or whatever amount you feel moved and able to give) is optional. Your gift will not only help us offset the cost of the concert but will also enable us to continue the “courageous, clumsy and often uncomfortable” conversations on race?we have come to recognize as a necessity in moving beyond the legacy of enslavement.
