In honor of the National Day of Racial Healing, join the Community Foundation of Greater Flint for a free, exclusive screening of “Origin.” “Origin” is a 2023 American biographical film written and directed by Ava DuVernay. It is based on the book “Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents” by Isabel Wilkerson, which describes racism in the United States as an aspect of a caste system.
The messages in “Origin” connect with CFGF’s efforts in Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT), a community-based process to plan for and bring about transformational and sustainable change, and to address the history and contemporary effects of racism. Communities must heal so they can grow. Our TRHT work is focused on healing and building sustainable progress neighbor by neighbor to transform Flint so all children can have a brighter future.
