National Day of Racial Healing

Tonight, the Steps Coalition hopes to bring people of all walks of life together to start a conversation about moving from racial division to racial harmony.
It’s all part of the National Day of Racial Healing. An event tonight put on by the Steps Coalition will serve as an opportunity for people, organizations, and the community to take collective action for a more equitable world.
While Martin Luther King Day was celebrated yesterday, the Steps Coalition hopes people will use the whole week to celebrate his dream of equality. Steps Coalition Executive Director Gregory Brown said, “Hopefully the event will help to underscore that we do have deep racial divisions in this world. We have deep racial divisions in the state of Mississippi, but it’s an opportunity, it’s a challenge, but it’s an opportunity for us to transform the state and to transform the nation. We can’t do that unless we come together and unite and tonight will be a celebration of that opportunity.”
If you’d like to take part locally in the National Day of Racial Healing you can join the Steps Coalition at 6 p.m. tonight at Leggett Memorial United Methodist Church in Biloxi.
