Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome lays the groundwork for understanding how the past has influenced the present, and opens up the discussion of how we can eliminate non-productive attitudes, beliefs and adaptive behaviors and, build upon the strengths we have gained from the past to heal injuries of today

Community Village Sites's insight:

I first heard Dr. Joy DeGruy on KPFA while driving. I couldn't wait to get to a computer to share her work. She cuts straight to the heart of some of the mostly unspoken about racial justice issues in the U.S.
