CitListen media session

Tuesday, Sept. 4
Bond Hall, Room 295
Invitation only; open to media

The Citadel’s Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT) Center is holding its first CitListen event, which will include media participants, on Tuesday, Sept. 4.

During the event, members of the media will learn about the TRHT Center by participating in a group session led by trained facilitators. This initial session aims to build a public understanding about the value of the sessions that will take place in various Lowcountry locations in coming months.

CitListen sessions aim to interrupt racially divisive narratives by connecting people to each other’s stories.

The Citadel, with the support of community partners including the Charleston County School District, YWCA of Greater Charleston, Charleston Trident Urban League and Charleston Police Department applied to be an institution of higher education selected for a Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation Center grant. More than 125 institutions applied. Approximately a year ago, The Citadel was one of 10 colleges selected and was awarded a grant of $30,000 to start a TRHT Center on campus.
