Rutgers University–Camden will also host a film screening and talk on Keith Beauchamp’s riveting documentary, The Untold Story of Emmett Till. Beauchamp’s film reflects on the life and legacy of Till, an African American teenager who was murdered in Mississippi in 1955, reportedly for making sexual advances toward a white woman.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the Walter K. Gordon Theater, located in the Fine Arts Building, at 314 Linden Street on the Rutgers–Camden campus.
What Is The National Day of Racial Healing?
The National Day of Racial Healing was originated in 2017 under W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation efforts, which serves as a community and national based-process to determine and bring about transformational and sustainable change in addition to talking about the historical and contemporary effects of racism in U.S. society.
Communities, municipalities, organizations, and individuals will come together in this wide array of programs to foster truth-telling, affirm our common humanity and inspire collective action toward a more just and equitable world.
