(Community Matters 66) WK Kellogg Foundation Asks Folks to Begin (or Continue) a Racial Healing Journey

Right after the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday is the National Day of Racial Healing, observed on January 16, 2024.

Battle Creek’s WK Kellogg Foundation calls upon locals and those across the country to reflect and “imagine 100 years without racism” – and attend a local event or watch online discussions and profiles.

The foundation has partnered with NBC News and Telemundo to air primetime specials observing the National Day of Racial Healing, which can be streamed online as well.

WK Kellogg Foundation spokesperson Stephanie Meinke also calls attention to interviews in 2023 with Battle Creek residents about the observance.
