Importance of community conversations

Once again last night the Kheprw Institute (KI) provided an opportunity for an open community discussion.   This time the topic was the environmental crisis, and was also sponsored by Indiana’s NAACP Environmental Justice committee, with Denise Abdul-Rahman, state chairperson.  As KI Director Imhotep Adisa often says, conversation is undervalued.  Indeed, conversation is where change happens because that is where we are challenged to step outside our usual thinking, and consider new ideas.  It is where we learn what other peoples experiences have been, and how they have integrated them into their lives.  It is where we see, always, that we are far more alike than we are different.  I am so grateful that KI offers these opportunities, as they have for years.  This is where real leadership in our community can be found.

This article is a little dated now, but still provides a good view of what KI is about.
