Black + Brown Community Healing Through Land
June 7, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT
Healing our relationship with land is essential for Black and Brown folks who have faced intergenerational dispossession. Following the greatest single decline in Black homeownership and wealth in the nation’s history, many families are struggling. This workshop will explore the connection between healing and land, offer examples from Detroit of redistribution of public and private lands, and encourage knowledge exchange among participants.
