About the Author, Resmaa Menakem:
Healer, New York Times Best-Selling Author, Trauma Specialist
Moving from race to culture to creation is important, transformative, and takes work. And a lot of reps. I help people, communities, and organizations find strength in healing that is holistic and resilient. Together let’s set a course for healing historical and racialized trauma carried in the body and the soul. I am a healer. I help people rise through the suffering’s edge. I am a cultural trauma navigator. I am a communal provocateur and coach. I consider it my job in this moment to make the invisible visible. From resmaa.com/about
Date & Time: Monday, January 25th, 7:30pm – 8:30pm
