America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing
Newly Revised and Updated Paperback Edition
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.
