My Grandmother’s Hands by Resmaa Menakem is an amusing and groundbreaking work that examines the damage caused by racism in America from the perspective of body-centered psychology. Menakem argues that until we learn to heal the generational anguish of white supremacy, which is deeply embedded in all our bodies, we will continue to bear its scars.
The body, where our instincts reside, endures the trauma inflicted by the ills that plague society. This book invites us to recognize that racism is not only about the head but also about the body. It introduces an alternative view of what we can do to grow beyond our entrenched racialized divide.
