Please join us on Wednesday, Oct. 27 at 7:30 p.m. for the second week of a seven-week student co-facilitated webinar series, Beyond Woke: Ubuntu as a Moral Code.

This Wednesday we will unpack:

  • Lesson 6: “Believe in the Good of Everyone.” In this lesson, we extend seeing beyond the wider perspective to see the good in others because:

“When you choose to see the good in others, you end up finding the good in yourself.” -Anonymous

  • Lesson 7: “Choose Hope Over Optimism.” In this lesson, we explore hope in the are guided by the idea that:

“We must accept finite disappointment but not lose infinite hope.”

– Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

This webinar is based upon the book, Everyday Ubuntu: Living Better Together the African Way, by Mungi Ngomane. Ngomane is the granddaughter of Archbishop Desmond Tutu who used the philosophy of Ubuntu to guide the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in South Africa. We encourage you to follow along with the book as we go through the first 10 lessons.

Using the African philosophy of Ubuntu, we will engage in a dialogue about social change, trauma, healing and unity. Over the next seven weeks, we will delve into questions of moral power and the strength of the human spirit to reach its full potential. On this journey, we will discover that it is not a deepening of individuality that brings self-actualization, but a strong identification with the collective consciousness and the adherence to the moral ideal of the sanctity of human life.
