Editor's Note: During the month of February, the African-American Wisdom Summit is open to all interested persons, and for free. The following is excerpted from the website:
With so much focus on all that’s wrong with our world, it can be easy to lose sight of the fact that we have visionaries, community leaders and citizens who are performing great acts of love, compassion and service every single day — forging new pathways and presenting innovative solutions for these challenging times.
And so many of these who exemplify humanity’s extraordinary potential draw their soul-powered strength, creativity and brilliance from African American wisdom.
...Too often, we define our conversation about African Americans around the challenges of racism and injustice, which — while important — can distract us from appreciating the amazing gifts, blessings and knowledge that have emerged from this rich culture.
Some of America’s greatest leaders — in realms from social change to spirituality to entertainment to business — have emerged out of a history of oppression.
...It’s difficult to talk about the huge racial divide taking place in America and across the planet, however this is THE most important conversation we as humanity can be having. During The African American Wisdom Summit, we’ll not only be opening up an honest dialogue and global conversation on race, we’ll also be identifying clear ways for you to create sustainable changes.
This global gathering is not only for African Americans, but for every citizen of the world who wishes to be blessed, transformed and bear witness to the flowering of real genius, great love, and profound wisdom.
Whether you’re an African American community leader, a caucasian social justice advocate or a mother who aches when explaining discrimination to her 5-year-old, the visionary and practical presenters in this event are sharing on eye-opening (and heart-opening!) subjects that can deeply transform your life... and the lives of all future generations.
