On Saturday, interns from The Heritage Foundation Young Leaders Program joined members of the Emerging Leaders program at The Gloucester Institute, an organization dedicated to fostering solution-oriented dialogue to resolve issues in the African-American community, for an event entitled “Impacting Civil Society: A Conversation about Race and Racism.”
Participants heard from Dr. Carl Ellis, board member of The Gloucester Institute and Provost Professor of Theology and Culture at Reformed Theological Seminary, who gave a talk about race and racism. “If this country has any chance of surviving, it’s through folks like you,” Dr. Ellis told the attendees.
Heritage interns and Gloucester Emerging Leaders shared their thoughts on race and other issues in small groups and discussed what millennials can do to bridge the national divide in our society. They left the event eager to continue the dialogue in order to heal some of the deep divisions in American culture. You can read more about the event on The Daily Signal here.
Do you think the divide in American culture is beginning to narrow, or is it wider than ever?
