Wednesday – June 19, 2024 – 1:00pm – 5:00pm
Join Ruth in this 4-hour workshop Intensive exploring The Cure for Racism. Drawing from her life experiences documented in her book, “RUTH: When I was thirty-five years old, I became Black”, Ruth brings to life the “how to’s” of her realization that racism is 100% curable.
Ruth’s strategy for success were fostered throughout her early childhood when she was made to feel less-than for having black skin among the Caucasians in her family who raised her. Being biracial Black gave her perspective and answers on how to heal our nation’s racial divides.
This interactive exercise will include Ruth’s writings; collective discoveries from within the group; and a 1960s music sing-along for fun and healing. Attendee’s perspectives will be heard as life examples and insights are shared The group think tank will compose a plan of collective tools that can help us endure the challenges of racism and work toward eradicating the problem.
At the conclusion of the Intensive, there will be a live music meditation session presented by Ruth for centering in the moment; for healing of our past wounds; and to gather courage for times to come.
Take part in The Cure for Racism Intensive as women gather to preserve wisdom and hope in a hurting world. We all must continue to nurture our inner strength with knowledge and compassion in order to serve in the days ahead.
Ruth King aka Ruth Anne King is an American musician, recording artist, songwriter, and author. In her highly anticipated book, “RUTH: When I was thirty-five years old, I became Black” she shares her very personal biracial Black American journey and offers hope and guidance with a cure for racism in our world today.
Ruth’s NWMF message, “Our Love Is Our Freedom”, is a spoken collage of experience intermingled with anecdotes and antidotes that have become the cornerstone of her intentional life objective. Affirming that racism is 100% curable is not too bold an assertion for Ruth, bringing solution and giving cause for belief.
Live music performance will be a part of Ruth’s presentation with original song. It was through performing live at the 2023 National Women’s Music Festival on the
SheRocks stage that Ruth debuted the music behind her memoir to a welcoming and enthusiastic NWMF audience.
As Keynote Speaker for the 2024 National Women’s Music Festival’s 48h Anniversary, Ruth will usher in a message apropos to the moment.
