Author Event: A Conversation with Resmaa Menakem

A discussion with Resmaa Menakem about healing racialized trauma and his book My Grandmother’s Hands, moderated by Dr. Patrick Reyes.

About this Event

Resmaa Menakem is a trauma specialist, healer, and author of New York Times Bestseller My Grandmother’s Hands. In his own words, Resmaa’s work “sets a course for healing historical and racialized trauma carried in the body and the soul.” In My Grandmother's Hands, he examines the damage done by racism and an approach to mending through body-centered psychology. This book has inspired conversations in the mental health community and beyond, igniting self-reflection and healing.

Libraries for Liberation distributes books that raise awareness of systemic racism and center the experiences of Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) to neighborhoods across the United States. They purchase books from BIPOC-owned bookstores, and hope the books that we distribute will facilitate community conversations that lead to connection, healing, and liberatory action.

All proceeds from this event go to Libraries for Liberation to support their goal to distribute books that raise awareness of systemic racism and center the experiences of BIPOC in all 50 states.
