Racial Trauma: Death by a Thousand Nicks

Saturday, May 14th @9:00 am (CST)

Professor Alvin Poussaint described the cumulative impact of microaggressions as “death by a thousand nicks”. What might seem small and insignificant can become ingrained into the very fiber of one’s being, causing the body to live in a constant state of alert.

This workshop will discuss how racial trauma impacts the physical, social, and psychological health of individuals and communities. Participants will recognize systemic oppressions and engage in dialogue around racial healing, empowerment, and equity.
