(Zoom) My Grandmother's Hands


7:30 PM

"My Grandmother’s Hands" Join Linda Girdner and Kim Champagne for a three-week introduction to the ideas proposed by Resmaa Menakem in his ground-breaking book "My Grandmother's Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies". Participants need not purchase the book at this time as we will be using a variety of support materials to begin to make sense of the damage caused by racism in America, using a body-centered understanding of white supremacy and its destroying affects. We will also take a look at some of the strategies Menakem uses to encourage healing. We will explore how these strategies can help us deal with the biological and psychological damage caused by racialized trauma, and how we can use these practices to draw us closer to God as we continue with racial justice work. Three Fridays at 7:30 on Zoom, beginning April 30th.
