National Day of Racial Healing 2021: To the Beat of One Drum
The 5th Annual National Day of Racial Healing (NDORH) on Tuesday, January 19, was a day for Chicagoans to come together in unity and solidarity with the youth movement for racial justice and to collectively heal. NDORH 2021 was a free, immersive, virtual event that promoted cultural healing practices and multi-cultural drumming performances to guide and set the tone for Racial Healing Circles. Action groups were formed to foster alliances among participants to support the youth movement to repair the harm caused by racist systems, policies and practices against Black, Native and Brown people. Over 600 people came together in solidarity.
