Community is a feeling of fellowship with others, as result of sharing common cultures, interests, and goals. Racial healing recognizes the needs to acknowledge and promote the truth about past wrongs based on the social construct of race by persons and systems and address the present consequences. How does the concepts of community and racial healing converge to move us forward towards greater equity and respect?
A process of reconciliation and transformation must begin with the truth, but often the truth has been dismissed or neglected regarding matters of race, and faith-based institutions have played a significant role on respective sides of the matter. Unmasking how we can achieve a greater semblance of unity and humanity can be challenging, but the work is essential for the greater good of our society.
