The National Day of Racial Healing (NDRH) was originated in 2017 under W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation efforts, which serves as a community and national based process to determine and bring about transformational and sustainable change in addition to talking about the historical and contemporary effects of racism in U.S. society.
We're so excited that CRYS MATTHEWS said, "YES" to our invitation to be our very special musical guest for the NDRH this year.
Listen to Crys' live performance from the NewSong Competition on the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage in 2018.
Listen to Crys' Official Music Video for her original song, Call Them In, inspired by former Congressman, John Lewis. VERY inspiring! (From Crys' Changemakers album, 2021)
Call Them In - partial lyrics
This is what (this is what) revolution looks like — you've got to get in then stay in this fight.
(You've got to) Find a way, to get in the way. Speak up, speak out every day. Freedom riders or letter writers, do what you can — just shine your light brighter.
Make good trouble every chance you get. Eyes on the prize! We're not finished yet. Don't tolerate injustice, my friend. Call them out, then call them in.
We believe that this concert will give you the joy and the strength to move through 2022 with passion, resolve and courage. Crys is known for – in her words - “creating music to inspire and encourage, to change hearts, not minds.” We believe it is essential to bring about racial healing, in part by making healthy change in our community. If systems and structures are to be transformed for the long haul, the people who maintain those systems must first be transformed. Each of us needs to see in new ways.
This event is free and everyone is welcome. The suggested donation is $10 (or whatever amount you feel moved and able to give). Your gift will not only help us offset the cost of the concert but will also enable us to continue the “courageous, clumsy and often uncomfortable” conversations on race we have come to recognize as a necessity in moving beyond the legacy of enslavement.
