Battle Creek community leaders and residents gathered on Monday, March 17, 2008 to discuss achieving racial equity and healing modern racism – both from the perspective of the greater Battle Creek community and in terms of the Kellogg Foundation’s work locally and nationally.
Dr. Allan G. Johnson, dynamic author, teacher and public speaker, shared his perspective on race, privilege, and power. Other speakers were Joe Stewart, Battle Creek community member and chair of the board of the Kellogg Foundation, Sterling Speirn, president and CEO, and Gail Christopher, vice president for programs.
There were opportunities for those in attendance to share their questions, concerns, interests, and ideas – to help identify what the issues are for Battle Creek and potentially, shape future actions. Read more about the event in the Battle Creek Enquirer article published March 18, 2008.
