We Hold These Truths, Dismantling Racial Hierarchies, Building Equitable Communities, Edited By Tia Brown McNair.

What is higher education doing to confront racism, and how are colleges and universities promoting equity and racial healing on their campuses and in their communities?

We Hold These Truths reports on the ongoing work at ten trailblazing colleges and universities that are preparing the next generation of leaders to overcome the false belief in a hierarchy of human value and to build equitable communities. In partnership with the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U), these institutions have established dedicated campus centers to implement ambitious, visionary action plans for addressing the historical and contemporary effects of racism—on their campuses, in our communities, and for our nation. The action plans are organized around the Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) framework and process developed by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to help communities heal and to produce actionable change.

The campus narratives included in We Hold These Truths provide a window on innovative and promising antiracism work now underway within higher education. And, more important, they present models and best practices emerging from AAC&U’s TRHT Campus Centers that can be adapted across higher education at colleges and universities of all types.
