Healing, harmony, and unity between groups occur as we interact more with and become better educated about one another.Clarence Wynter
The Calgary Black Chambers (CBC) is a non for profit (NFP) society collaborating with our Calgary multicultural black professional community engaging with greater understanding, for sensitivity, experience, values, history, and lifestyles from groups that include, and not limited to race; ethnicity gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, socio-economic status, mental or physical disabilities.
The coronavirus COV1-19 epidemic currently impacting our global way of life how we live, work and play; this virus has no prejudice. While we are contemplating what it means to respect the cultures of others, maybe we should stop pointing fingers outside as the root problem, and start looking further inside; the ability to see the beauty within the divine spirit of another start with the ability to see within oneself. A people without the knowledge of their history, origin, and culture is like a tree without roots. Let your values and ethics create a conscious road to evolve.
It is only within our own sense of justice for our own self and our own community, that we can understand justice for another. With that same force of spirit, that same passion, and that same longing for the respect that we can thrive to be understood, and to understand. Integrating empathy into our own awareness can propel everyone into other position of growth and global understanding some of the experiences; differences and views of those who do and think differently than another.
Healing, harmony, and unity between groups occur as we interact more with and become better educated about one another. It is a cause for celebration when we are willing to take risks regarding our multicultural evolution. We have a conscious opportunity to validate within our community people of color to step up to the plate using the AI virtual platform to collaborate our expertise improving our commerce to be fit for purpose globally to support the next generation.
CBC will be an instrument for our community to support and mentor our young minds and each other to enrich and strengthen ourselves to overcome the adversities our pioneers have endured. This pandemic is an opportunity for us to harness our skills and establish joint ventures. Eliminating that people of color are marginalized per the media style such as sports, music, etc.
As people of color we need new narratives to capture the fundamentals and establish policies and procedures to support our next generation local, and international, have a platform to support ourselves not feeling inferior to existing societal structure. If we, as a people, realize the greatness from which we came, we would be less likely to disrespect ourselves. Any realistic vision of change must be based on the notion of empowerment of people. This pandemic is an opportunity to open our eyes to collaborate with the designers, inventors, and inventions to bring our community to life for wellness and legacy we can be proud of.
