Timely Topics: An Introduction to the TRHT Framework: A Holistic Approach to Racial Equity

 
Our Timely Topic presentation introduces participants to the national Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation (TRHT) Movement and Framework and the work of the TRHT Center at Duke.

The TRHT Framework is a comprehensive and community-based process to address the historical and contemporary sources of racism and bring about transformation and sustainable change.

Dr. Gail Christopher was the director of the design team at the W.K. Kellogg Foundation when the framework was developed.  Dr. Christopher's daughter, Heather McGhee is author of  The Sum of  Us, League Lit Western Wake: The Sum of Us - 12/14/2021
Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) is a comprehensive, national and community-based process to plan for and bring about transformational and sustainable change, and to address the historic and contemporary effects of racism.

The effects of racism are evident in the social, economic and government policies all around us and the places in which we live, learn, work and play. People experience these effects when they take their children to school, when they apply for jobs, when they try to rent or buy a home, when they shop, when they interact with the police and more.

TRHT seeks to unearth and jettison the deeply held, and often unconscious, beliefs created by racism – the main one being the belief in a “hierarchy of human value.”

This absurd belief, which has fueled racism and conscious and unconscious bias throughout American culture, is the perception of inferiority or superiority based on race, physical characteristics or place of origin. It is when we value one person more than another based on skin color or other physical, superficial characteristics and let those values affect the decisions we make each day in areas like policymaking, in job decisions, in how we teach children – to name a few.
