-----------------------------------------------------------------------
"For me, the most important lesson
[of the Freedom Movement] is that by respecting the fact that fellow activists could passionately disagree over strategy and tactics—yet remain allies—they strengthened SNCC and the Movement as a whole."
From Bruce Hartford's article in the current issue of Urban Habitat.

Healing Slavery's Legacy

At California Institute of Integral Studies

April 21 - Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome, with Dr. Joy DeGruy
April 22 - Slavery's Legacy: A workshop on Intergenerational Trauma and Healing

This series features ground-breaking dialogues with leading scholars, psychotherapists and shamanic practitioners dealing with the residual effects of historical trauma on Native and African American communities and other under-served communities. The series will explore current clinical findings and scientific research and raise questions such as:

    * What is intergenerational trauma?
    * How does it manifest in particular groups?
    * How do historic systems of oppression impact modern health?
    * Is trans-generational trauma one of the causative factors in the alteration of gene expression?
    * What are some of the healing modalities and practices from indigenous and Western traditions?
