Barbara Spencer Dunn

Migration From Our Ignorance to the Truth

Barbara Spencer Dunn (author/lay historian/scholar activist), native of Texas, takes us on a ‘thought journey’ as she explores the topic Migration From Our Ignorance to the Truth as she provides thought provoking historical facts enhanced by the philosophy of the Father of Black History, Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson.  Mrs. Dunn’s presentation hopes to leave her audience on a path that will help to make this world a better place to live as we earnestly encounter the fact that we are more alike than different and the realization that race is a social construct–there is one race–the human race.  She leaves us in a moment in time that begs an answer to the question “Where do we go from here?”
