How We Can Start to Heal The Pain of Racial Divisions: Ruby Sales

One of our beloved mentors, Ruby Sales, released a TED Talk on healing racial divisions that has captured and stretched our imagination. Watch and be renewed, challenged, and inspired!


Where does it hurt?" It's a question that activist and educator Ruby Sales has traveled the US asking, looking deeply at the country's legacy of racism and searching for sources of healing. In this moving talk, she shares what she's learned, reflecting on her time as a freedom fighter in the civil rights movement and offering new thinking on pathways to racial justice.

This talk was presented at a TED Salon event given in partnership with Verizon. TED editors featured it among our selections on the home page. Read more about TED Salons.
