 April 17: Healing Generational Trauma Conference- Saturday 9:00am-3:00pm

- 2020 began with COVID-19 and quarantine, and the year ended with more hashtags, this time for Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd. The hurt, anger, and frustration culminated in weeks of protests around the United States, including in the New Hanover County area. But that hurt and anger didn't begin in 2020; rather, it has origins going back centuries. Where does it come from, and how is it passed down from generation to generation? During Healing Generational Trauma: A Community Arts Experience, we will seek to answer those questions through film, spoken word, movement, and workshops
