What have key figures from U.S. Black History taught us about forging reconciliation across differences? How have Black women and men built bridges that cross not only race, but also ethnicity, nationality, religion, and other forms of difference? What does it take to build cultures of inclusion, especially after histories of exclusion, oppression and violence? By understanding the contributions made from past and present historical figures,we can share the important lessons learned for addressing the conflicts that prevent our societies from making progress. We can all become change leaders by learning from these examples and taking practical actions to make lasting change. Please join this interactive discussion as we connect across nations – the U.S. and Germany – in ways that advance our understanding and deepen our sense of shared endeavor.
