We believe that changing narratives changes lives. Morehouse students spent time in the Mollenbeek community of Brussels building relationships with their counterparts in the Nation Builders Global Leadership Program. The focus of the interaction was to learn about each others' cultures and engage in problem solving about the issues that negatively affect inner city communities and those who have been marginalized because of their ethnicity, religion, gender, or political ideology.
Each group brought their experiences to rich conversations, activities, and ceremonies. The youth studied together, played sports together, partied together, and imagined a future peaceful world together. All of the participants were challenged to create programs in their communities that bring people of diverse backgrounds and beliefs together to engage in dialogue and problem solving together. This interaction has created powerful relationships that will continue to impact the world into the future.
