There’s a new group around town making changes, and wearing lapel pins that say “racial healing ambassador.”
Twenty-five Louisvillians have graduated from the Healing History Academy in an attempt to remedy social inequalities.
“I grew up in a town where we were the only Chinese family, and there was a petition sent around in the 1950s to ask us to leave,” said racial healing ambassador Rev. Susan Engpool.
“There’s always been racial issues, and finally there’s a group coming together to talk about the issues here in Louisville,” said racial healing ambassador Wanda Hoosier.
The ambassadors recently completed the year-long Healing History program.
