Black Belt Community Foundation is an Alabama Bright Light of hope, healing

BBCF is proud to work with the Selma Center for Nonviolence as our TRHT programmatic place partner. TRHT is a comprehensive, national and community-based process to plan for and bring about transformational and sustainable change, and to address the historic and contemporary effects of racism. A primary focus of the TRHT is jettisoning the deeply held, and often unconscious, beliefs that undergird racism – the main one being the belief in a “hierarchy of human value.” This belief, which has fueled racism and conscious and unconscious bias throughout American culture, is the perception of a person’s or group’s inferiority or superiority based on physical characteristics, race, ethnicity or place of origin.

The TRHT was initiated in January 2016 by the Kellogg Foundation. Now in its implementation phase, TRHT Selma is one of 14 places throughout the country receiving support from the Kellogg Foundation to implement this work, building on TRHT process and framework co-developed in the 2016 design phase.
