Carter G. Woodson Lecture: Resilient Joy


Join us as Dr. Errol Bolden presents "Resilient Joy," which speaks to not only the reality of a people who encountered much and persevered but were able to thrive in an inequitable world collectively. This presentation highlights some key characteristics of a resilient spirit. The Kwanzaa principle of Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility) is also embraced as central to joyous resilience enjoyed by people who refuse to be rendered invisible or dismissed as insignificant. They, like a brand-new penny, continued to shine.
