#HowWeHeal Book Club is focusing on the topic of “intergenerational racialized trauma,” through Resmaa Menakem’s self-help book My Grandmother’s Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Hearts & Bodies.
Using Zoom, we will be meeting on 2nd Tuesdays, February through November from 6 to 7 pm. See our Facebook link for more details.
Please see the CHAPTER SYLLABUS listed on the menu of this blog for those to be discussed each month. Body Practices are interspersed throughout each chapter, deepening the awareness of the main points, with Re-memberings at the close of each chapter as summaries.
During the month leading up to the meeting I will be posting “TALKING POINTS“ on pdjcc.org and in the Book Club Online or Email Event, key highlights you can use in an Elevator Speech as part of our Racial Healing Campaign. A conversation, “when grounded in empathy and racial equity,” acknowledging racialized trauma, has a restorative potential to affirm that value of all.
The book is available online, on ebook and in audio. You may also check its free availability from the Book Club Facilitator Joanne Scott Woods at firstname.lastname@example.org.
