NACRJ Board President Dr. Teiahsha Bankhead Interviewed for NPR Podcast
NACRJ Board President Dr. Teiahsha Bankhead was recently interviewed in an episode of the NPR Throughline podcast. This episode, entitled "The Way Back," dives into the history of public apologies and how, for many, an apology in the public eye has lost meaning and is often seen as a "product" instead of a genuine healing "process" by the perpetrator. Restorative justice plays a major role in supporting individuals in taking responsibility for their actions and helps people and communities repair harm. Dr. Bankhead provides valuable insight into the significance of apologies in today's world and how integrating restorative justice in the apology process has the potential to heal ourselves, our communities and our society as a whole.
