Newly Revised and Updated Paperback Edition

**We extend our most sincere apologies to everyone who has been waiting for orders to arrive. 
The decision to bypass big publishers and publish independently is tough, but in this case, it was the correct one. And while there are important benefits to self-publishing – especially given the nature of the book’s content – logistics is not one of them! 

This has been a long and frustrating process at every turn – formatting, printing, and website issues – but we are truly working hard to get everyone their orders as soon as possible. 
If you have not yet received your book order, please email your receipt to with the subject title PTSS BOOK ORDER and we will ship your book right away.**

While African Americans managed to emerge from chattel slavery and the oppressive decades that followed with great strength and resiliency, they did not emerge unscathed. Slavery produced centuries of physical, psychological and spiritual injury.

Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing lays the groundwork for understanding how the past has influenced the present, and opens up the discussion of how we can use the strengths we have gained to heal.

In this Revised Edition, 30+ pages of new content covers updated research and statistics, commentary on current events, and chronicles Joy’s tour of West Africa. It is an exhaustive guide to our nation’s racial trauma and a roadmap for cultural leaders, activists and policy makers to effect the change we need for healing to begin.
