August has a particular significance in Black freedom struggle and sparked the creation of a yearly celebration called Black August.
There are two things in particular that inspired the creation of Black August; the commemoration of the martyrdom of Jonathan Jackson in 1970, which was inspired by many of the prison uprisings & the birth of the Honorable Marcus Garvey, a stalwart of modern Pan African Nationalism and self determination.
In the spirit of this history we bring you the Black August Symposium.
This event is an entire day (9am to 3pm) of educational and informative discussions on prevalent issues affecting Baltimore’s Black community. We’ll be inviting special guest moderators and panelists to participate.
Topics will include:
- Anti-Violence in Baltimore
- Criminal Justice Reform
- Building Baltimore’s Black Arts Community
We’ve also been gifted FREE tours of the National Great Blacks in Wax Museum for attendees of the event (must RSVP advance to do tour).
FREE food & refreshments for the entire day.
Healing in Community demonstrates resources for wellness and self-healing from the long-term stress of inter-generational, economic, medical and emotional trauma. Addressing the impact of historical and systematic racism that maintains trauma in communities of color provides resources for organizations and institutions to audit their operating practices and norms. Increasing methods for reducing stress, anxiety and providing outlets for listening within organizations, systems and communities reveals best practices in restorative and healing modalities.
#HealinginCommunity employs visual narratives to highlight ancient and community healing rituals. Our goal is to highlight strategies that expand opportunities for soulful expression, conscious expansion, and optimal wellness. We are creating short films designed to share stories, inspiration and platforms that illuminate the impact of indigenous healing resources and self-care practices of individuals and their communities. #HealingInCommunity is sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and the National Centered for Trauma Informed Care.
Using #HealinginCommunity as an interactive transmedia tool provides individuals and indigenous resources with a platform to share their stories and tools. It also provides a rubric for trainers and providers to teach the core principles of Trauma Informed Care by sharing pathways to culturally connected techniques for restoring the soul of distressed individuals and communities.
Success can be measured by the increase in awareness of community and ancient models of healing, activities involving community building that include laughter, mindfulness, and showing up for one another. Over time, the adoption of indigenous and contemporary healing practices will increase opportunities for resiliency, reduces toxic stress, improves clarity of thought and overall health and self-care for individuals and communities.
