The Silent History and Healing Through Time

Tuesday February 19, 2019 at 7:00pm

Staunton City Hall, 116 West Beverley St.

A group of local citizens from different backgrounds will share their stories of what it has been like to live during segregation, school integration and up to the present day.

Once again, we will meet to discuss issues that are still prevalent in this day and age. Progressing through the 21st century, we find ourselves and our country at a critical period. A time where, if we refuse to accept each other for who we are and our past, progress will not be possible. The hard discussions must take place and we must engage in the even more difficult task of listening. Edmund Burke once said, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." We will do this hard task of conversing with one another and trying to find ways to move forward.
