Black History Month arrived with a big thaw, and a smashing idea from LaTrenda
Big idea. I'm in, if yinz are serious.
It is a year-long, or, multi-year effort. LaTrenda Leonard Sherrill should be the FOUNDING and first DEAN of studies. Kick-off / orientation should be on MLK day 2020. Intensive courses and engagement in Feb 2020. For good or bad, that time is going to bring a big storm of politics in advance of the 2020 primary and general elections.
Community Learning Outreach Hub, my hobby domain, CLOH.org, can publish the course notes, and I'll help with a few waves of invites to Libertarians, Indies, Socialists, Liberals, Conservatives, Greens, Ds and Rs.
Agree with chatter above: POLITICAL WILL is a huge element that is missing, in this front, and within some others -- sadly.
What was once called the Black & White Reunion, now re-branded, as well as PA Interfaith Impact Network could be early supporters. A long list of others could be gathered by end of Black History Month 2019.
Weekly conference calls, say 10:30 pm on a week night, would be a good way to be open and transparent.
FWIW, my calling is within the theme of "Playing Well with Others."

It would be nice for black history month if white leaders In Pittsburgh (corporate, electeds, and nonprofit CEOs) went thru racial equity training together as a cohort. No more new leadership trainings for black people, y’all just caucus and learn about the system that y’all facilitate and uphold.
Now that would be something.
