What is the outcome of generations of slavery followed by institutionalized racism upon the present-day African American and his family and community life? Joy Degruy opens up the discussion of how the black community can use their strengths to heal post traumatice slave syndrome...a delayed emtional, psychological, spiritual and yes even physical reactions that plays out in present day conduct and feelings as a result of multigenerational oppression of Africans and their descendants through the diaspora and centuries of chattel slavery. A form of slavery which was predicated on the belief that African Americans were inherently and genetically inferior to whites. Can yesterday affect today? The answer is most certainly yes! But he real question is, "what are we (all of society) going to do about it?" Degruy offers some answers. Joy Degruy Publications (2005), English, Paperback: 244 pages.
