Five Newark sites, including four library branches, will each host an iteration of the Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT) Campus Center at Rutgers University – Newark.
The centers opened yesterday.
TRHT Campus Centers is an initiative developed by the Association of American Colleges to address “the historic and contemporary effects of racism,” while helping to seek “transformational and sustainable change.”
In addition to the location at the Rutgers-Newark John Cotton Dana Library, library patrons will also be able to learn more about the initiative. Each “chapter” will engage with students and residents through programs such as Racial Healing Circles, Healing Sounds of Newark spoken word events, and ‘ImVisible’ art programs.
