Juneteenth Celebration | Embrace Ideas Festival Day 2 @ HMS: RACIALIZED HEALI

On Day 2 of Embrace Ideas Festival, hosted by Harvard Medical School, we explore what healing from racialized trauma can look and feel like. Keynote speaker, Michael Curry, President and CEO of Mass League of Community Health Centers, joins Jeneé Osterheldt, culture columnist with the Boston Globe, to explore key learnings and lessons for us all to embody.

The keynote session is followed by a dynamic panel of Black, women healers in conversation about embodied healing from racialized trauma. King Boston’s Director of Community Engaged Research, Dr. April Inniss, will welcome the following panelists: Dr. Thea James, Boston Medical Center; Dr. Myechia Minter-Jordan, Carequest; and Dr. Joan Reede, Harvard Medical School.

Unwind, connect, and enjoy small bites with fellow Festival attendees from 4-6pm with King Boston’s Artist-in-Resident, Kaovanny.
