Healing History: Resilience Through Music and Conversation 2020.1
January 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
6:00pm - 8:00pm
Bastrop County Cares is hosting a four-part series with a tribute to diversity and music in Bastrop County aimed at creating healing conversations and musical experiences to overcome the cross-cultural miscommunication in our society. With a focus on youth and survivors of trauma (historical and other), Healing History will work from a trauma-informed perspective to guide change for Bastrop County.
Part 1: Race-Based Trauma – From a historical context to current experiences
Remembering and sharing the history of Bastrop County will help to move us forward in creating a more resilient and inclusive society. When we speak our truths and listen deeply to others, we find common ground with those who we may have perceived as different. With storytelling and historical facts, we will learn about the 25 freedom colonies of African American families with roots in Bastrop County as well as the many other native Bastrop perspectives. Leaving this session, we will be able to share in this rich history and begin the healing process for greater connections and community visioning.
Panelists include Hannibal Lokumbe, Ken Kesselus, Peggy Miller, and Sen. Gonzalo Barrientos.
Musical performance by James Robinson and Band, and the Spoken Word Performer is Joe Bundidge.
Event is facilitated by Jerry Hawkins, Director of Dallas Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation (DTRHT). The four-part series is a part of the Resilient Bastrop County Initiative.
