This Community Conversation is being presented free for social workers, their clients, and the general public.  It is not CEU eligible.

This Community Conversation, Inherited Wisdom: Drawing on the Lessons of Formerly Enslaved Ancestors to Lift Up Black Youth, underscores how practitioners and lay people alike can highlight the strength, fortitude, resilience, and community found in the narratives of enslaved forebears to help young people recover hope for the future. Based on their book of the same title, Dr. Barbara Milton, LCSW and Dr. Deborah Brooks Lawrence will discuss how the resilient and resourceful actions of enslaved Africans many years ago can serve as a blueprint for the healing and survival of their progeny in contemporary society.
