My Grandmother's Hands: Radicalized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending our Hearts and Bodies


My Grandmother's Hands
 is a call to action for all of us to recognize that racism is not about the head, but about the body, and introduces an alternative view of what we can do to grow beyond our entrenched racialized divide. (publisher description)

  • Paves the way for a new, body-centered understanding of white supremacy-- how it is literally in our blood and our nervous system 
  • Offers a step-by-step solution--a healing process--in addition to incisive social commentary.
