"Using Conversations to Heal the Racial Divide"

Join Take PART for a free online presentation by noted author and educator, Judi Moore Latta, PhD, on Thursday, January 21st, 7:00 PM.  The presentation will be moderated by Ms. Victoria Morgan, followed by an interactive discussion.


Dr. Moore Latta will share deeply personal memories and painfully silent moments from her book, Beyond Roses - An Obligation to Speak. Be inspired to:​

  • Tell your own story and learn how to actively listen to others.

  • Engage in conversations that heal the racial divide.

  • Confront history head on and reclaim it on your own terms.

  • Use the concept of “story-hope,” designed to address racism, one of the most challenging issues of the 21st Century.


Judi Moore Latta is professor emerita of Communications at Howard University in Washington, DC.  She was National Public Radio’s first Education Reporter, as well as the creator and executive producer of NPR’s first Hispanic news program, Latin File.  While at NPR, Dr. Moore Latta earned the George Foster Peabody Award as senior producer of the 26-part documentary series, Wade in the Water: African American Sacred Music Traditions.


Her two books are: God Ain’t Sleep: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (2015) and Beyond Roses - An Obligation to Speak (2020).  Her newest book, Really Dancing Beyond Dreams - The Collective Memory of a Black Love Story, is anticipated to be published in 2021.

The mission of Take PART is to confront racism and to engage in dismantling the systems that perpetuate ingrained racial inequality.  We do this through events, education and outreach that foster engagement in building community where all people are treated with equality and respect.
