about

The first self-help book to examine white-body supremacy in America from the perspective of trauma and body-centered psychology A NEW YORK TIMES AND WASHINGTON POST BESTSELLER My Grandmother''s Hands will change the direction of the movement for racial justice. Robin DiAngelo, New York Times bestselling author of White Fragility In this groundbreaking book, therapist Resmaa Menakem examines the damage caused by racism in America from the perspective of trauma and body-centered psychology. The body is where our instincts reside and where we fight, flee, or freeze, and it endures the trauma inflicted by the ills that plague society. Menakem argues this destruction will continue until Americans learn to heal the generational anguish of white supremacy, which is deeply embedded in all our bodies. Our collective agony doesn''t just affect African Americans. White Americans suffer their own secondary trauma as well. So do blue Americans—our police. My Grandmother''s Hands is a call to action for all of us to recognize that racism is not only about the head, but about the body, and introduces an alternative view of what we can do to grow beyond our entrenched racialized divide. - 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 healing process based on the latest neuroscience and somatic healing methods, in addition to incisive social commentary.
