Truth Day Tuesday: A Better (& More Honest) Way To Use Social Media.

SUNY Plattsburgh is hosting a 'National Day of Racial Healing' event at The Strand Center for the Arts on Tuesday, with a lineup of organizations to make presentations.

Dr. Michelle Bonati, an assistant professor at SUNY Plattsburgh, says Martin Luther King Junior day is an opportunity to reflect on the contributions of people 'past and present' to civil rights.

"And then we move into the space around National Day of Racial Healing the day after," she said. “National Day of Racial Healing is a time for us to reflect on our shared values and promote healing from the effects of racism.”

SUNY Plattsburgh's Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation Campus Center is the first of its kind in the SUNY system, which Bonati says provides a space for students, staff and community members to come together, engage in active listening, and understand the experiences of others.

The organization will host Tuesday's event at The Strand Theater on Tuesday, with presentations from groups across the North Country such as the North Country Underground Railroad Association, and Plattsburgh leaders and artists who've contributed to the Turtle Sculpture in Peace Point Park and the downtown mural dedicated to local astronaut Michael Anderson.

"We really wanted people to have a better sense of groups in our community who are working towards promoting racial healing. They are groups that represent diverse racial backgrounds in our community, and also doing things to highlight the work and contributions of people of color in our community as well," Bonati said.

The public can join the event at the Strand Theater on Tuesday from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. The event is free and masks are required. But, if you can't make it, Bonati says you can begin your own conversations about racial healing in your own community and points to the W.K. Kellogg Foundation's website for resources.

"Think about, how do we draw people together that are working towards this common good, our shared humanity," she said.
