Please join us on Tuesday, Nov. 23, at 7:30 p.m. for the final week of a 7-week student co-facilitated webinar series, Beyond Woke: Ubuntu as a Moral Code.
This Tuesday we will unpack:
- Lesson 10: “Embrace Our Diversity.” In this lesson we explore the gift of diversity.
“Nobody knows everything but everyone knows something.”
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 7 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.
