Acknowledging Black Trauma and Its National Effects

Free and open to the public

What is black trauma? How can understanding black trauma and the damage it creates in individual and collective lives help us to think about the nation’s racial inheritance? Using a case study from the mass movement for civil rights, this lecture encourages a rethinking of activism, trauma, and its legacies—particularly given today’s current racially-charged political climate.
