Coming to the Table
Please note: In order to accommodate more schedules, beginning in January 2018 we will be hosting Coming to the Table on the third Saturday of each month at the Sumner Library. The next date is Saturday, January 20, 2018.
At Coming to the Table (CTTT), descendants of those who were enslaved and descendants of slave owners and all those interested in engaging safe constructive dialogue, come together to envision the United States as a just and truthful society that acknowledges and seeks to heal the racial wounds from the historical trauma of slavery, and the racism it continues to spawn.
CTTT provides relationship engagement, leadership, resources, and a supportive environment to dismantle racism that is rooted in the United States’ history of slavery.
Join Peacebuilding Associate Trainer Crixell Shell and others invested in transforming trauma into nonviolent power in the Friends of the Sumner Library Meeting Room at the Sumner Library (611 Van White Memorial Blvd. Minneapolis MN 55411) from 10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. to help instigate this monthly CTTT group in Minneapolis for all who want to take Minnesota beyond the legacy of enslavement and be part of the solution.
