Why Only Black People Will Read and Learn From Black History…And Then, Not Even All of Us Will Get It

I got this from Prometheus 6, via Jack & Jill Politics.

The speaker is Dr. Joy DeGruy-Leary, a clinical psychologist, who is an expert in post-traumatic slave syndrome. The interviewer is Gil Noble.

Dr. Joy is the acclaimed author of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome—America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing, and the newly released, Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: The Study Guide. In P.T.S.S.: The Study Guide, Dr. Joy revisits the topics she covers in P.T.S.S. and provides a detailed mapping of how you can begin the change process in your personal life, employment, family and in your community. She illustrates how—with thoughtful self–exploration—each of us can evaluate our behaviors and replace negative and damaging behaviors with those that will promote, ensure and sustain the healing and advancement of African Americans.
