Why History Matters: Celebrating Juneteenth Together
History is far more than an academic pursuit. It has critical contemporary meaning in the way that it frames current national perceptions and individual realities. In this talk, Michael shares a number of powerful examples – both personal and societal – to illustrate the point that historical narratives have a critical impact on how we think of ourselves and behave. This connectivity explains much of the racial strife and tension that we experience to this day.

Michael is currently the Diversity and Inclusion Officer at Blackbaud – the world’s leading software company powering the social good community.
