The purpose of the National Day of Racial Healing is to bring people of all cultures, ethnicities, and backgrounds together. It is a time to:
1. Reinforce and honor our common humanity, while celebrating the distinct differences that make our communities vibrant.
2. Acknowledge the deep racial divisions that exist in America and must be overcome and healed.
3. Commit to engaging people from all racial and ethnic groups in genuine efforts to increase understanding, communication, caring and respect for one another.
Here are some books that help promote racial healing and understanding.
