Join Holocaust Museum Houston in our first event celebrating Black History Month with a lecture and performance piece from musician and activist Kam Franklin on why she believes the healing and unity will not occur without acceptance of the trauma, radical healing, empathy, education, and inclusivity.
“A broken ankle won’t heal if you keep trying to walk on it. Trust me, I learned this the hard way. Each time I refused to accept that rest was the only way for me to recover, I was forced to sit out from the things I loved even more as my body repeated the healing process. At a time when our nation is struggling to decipher its foot from its...well, everything.”
