Leadership opportunities in our communities and the profession are so important. Thank you for showing our members how vital it is to become more engaged in leadership roles.

Dr. Artika Tyner’s message was poignant and struck a chord with me and those amid my working group during her session on Diversity and Inclusion with The Midway Chamber of Commerce. Dr. Tyner’s message compelled me to mine and challenge my personal narrative and everyday working assumptions on racism and inclusion. I work for a non-profit that supports adults with disabilities, a community that is often excluded from central narratives; and her questions and strategies hit home for my work in this community as well. Thank you to Dr. Tyner for encouraging and inspiriting conversation that leads to action.

The Minnesota Humanities Center is grateful to Dr. Tyner for so generously sharing her knowledge and expertise as we prepared eight communities throughout Minnesota to engage in community conversations around the Constitution. Using a case study of the Civil War, Dr. Tyner brought a key idea to life: that the Constitution is a living document and a work still in progress.
