Mapping the Connections between Race, Place, and Health for Racial Healing and Health Equity - A Racial Healing Project

Mapping the Connections between Race, Place, and Health for Racial Healing and Health Equity

A Racial Healing Project
Mapping the Connections between Race, Place, and Health for Racial Healing and Health Equity aims to help build the capacity of urban maternal and child health leaders to engage in racial healing efforts.  Often referred to more succinctly as The Racial Healing Project, this W. K. Kellogg Foundation-funded project took place in two selected urban communities in Memphis and Nashville, TN. Led by CityMatCH members in both cities, teams of dedicated individuals focused their efforts on team building, guidance around facilitating difficult conversations, and community opportunity mapping. All of this is done in an effort to explore the historical, political, and economic policies of the past and the effects of institutionalized racism on urban communities to promote understanding and healing.
