Mobilizing Black Trauma

Black trauma is trending. Due in part to the rise of Black Lives Matter, the healing justice movement, widely-publicized racial violence, and biomedical research, we are witnessing broader attention to Black historical, racial, and childhood trauma. In this presentation, I reflect on the spatial limitations and possibilities of mobilizing trauma for Black healing and solidarity. Throughout, I lift up grassroots healing work from around the country, while drawing on personal experiences as a geographer and trauma-conscious meditation facilitator. Upcoming at the American Association of Geographers Conference! | Health as Fix Session
