Black people have been burdened by the lie of Black inferiority for far too long. It is well past time for us to free ourselves and our children. Community Healing Network, Inc. 5th ANNUAL TALLAHASSEE COMMUNITY HEALING DAYS “Healing through Spirit and Self-Determination” October 14-16, 2016
What is the origin of Community Healing Days?
Community Healing Network, Inc. (CHN), based in New Haven, Connecticut, is the founder and leader of the annual celebration of Community Healing Days,SM held on the third weekend of every October, to put “time for healing” on the Black community’s agenda and to serve as a catalyst for the establishment of year-round healing programs. The first Community Healing Days were celebrated October 17-19, 2008 in Montclair, New Jersey and Tuskegee, Alabama. In 2012 over 135 cities across the United States celebrated Community Healing Days.
Tallahassee celebrated the first Community Healing Days in 2012. The theme of our 5th annual celebration is “Our Sacred Legacy: Healing through Spirit and Self-determination.”
What is the purpose of Community Healing Days?
African Americans come together to dialogue and discuss the effects of the Maafa (Great disaster, Holocaust of enslavement) and its effects on people of African ancestry, specifically the promotion of the myth of black inferiority. The Friday activity is devoted to raising awareness about the effects of the myth of black inferiority through viewing films, reading books, or presentations. Saturday is dedicated to promoting the healing of our bodies through physical and health/mental health related activities. On Sunday, inspirational activities are implemented to promote healing and unity.
