Thursday: “Healing the Wound of Slavery: Resolving Racial Conflicts in America.” This discussion looks at something most Americans would rather keep under wraps: slavery. It will explore the emotional intensity surrounding the experience of slavery in America, as well as provide insight into the history of the slave trade and how the legacy of this practice affects race relations today.
