Our multi-city Truth Campaign and Tour is designed to take CHN’s 2018 Valuing Black Lives Summit on the road—in order to dramatically increase the number of people of African ancestry who are firmly on the road to emotional emancipation and able to more effectively address the challenges before us as a people.
Our initial goal is to equip Black parents, teachers, and leaders of community-based organizations in key cities across the African Diaspora to help Black children “defy the lie of Black inferiority and embrace the truth of Black humanity.”
The Tour will be launched from New Haven, Connecticut, CHN’s birthplace, on September 14, 15, and 16, 2018.
With our principal ally, the Association of Black Psychologists, we will travel from city to city—hosting a weekend retreat for Black parents and teachers, and workshops for leaders of community-based organizations.
In August of 2019, the Truth Tour will arrive in Richmond, Virginia, where we will host the 2019 Valuing Black Lives Global Emotional Emancipation Summit.
We will join in observances of the 400th anniversary of the first forced arrival of Africans in the United States to reflect on our past. We will focus on shaping our future by issuing a ‘Call to the African Union and the Diaspora to join the movement for emotional emancipation– for complete freedom for Black people.
The next stop after Richmond will be Ghana, West Africa.
