Thursdays, Oct. 21, Nov. 11 and Dec. 2 at 6:45-8 p.m., on Zoom

Have you ever considered that only a fraction of white supremacy exists in the mind? In the book My Grandmother’s Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies, Resmaa Menaken tells us that racial trauma lies primarily in our bodies; white and black bodies, as well as police bodies. Join Lisa Hesse as she leads you through experiential and body-based practices that explore racialized trauma. This session meets only on Zoom.
