Off-site Book Selling - My Grandmother’s Hands

Source Booksellers is the official book seller for author Resmaa Menakem, discussing his book My Grandmother’s Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies.

About the book: The body is where our instincts reside and where we fight, flee, or freeze, and it endures the trauma inflicted by the ills that plague society. In this groundbreaking work, therapist Resmaa Menakem examines the damage caused by racism in America from the perspective of body-centered psychology. He argues this destruction will continue until Americans learn to heal the generational anguish of white supremacy, which is deeply embedded in all our bodies. Our collective agony doesn't just affect African Americans. White Americans suffer their own secondary trauma as well. So do blue Americans—our police.
