Book Description :

In the 16th century, the beginning of African enslavement in the Americas until the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment and emancipation in 1865, Africans were hunted like animals, captured, sold, tortured, and raped. They experienced the worst kind of physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual abuse. Given such history, isn't it likely that many of the enslaved were severely traumatized? And did the trauma and the effects of such horrific abuse end with the abolition of slavery? Emancipation was followed by one hundred more years of institutionalized subjugation through the enactment of Black Codes and Jim Crow laws, peonage, convict leasing, domestic terrorism and lynching. Today the violations continue, and when combined with the crimes of the past, they result in yet unmeasured injury. What do repeated traumas, endured generation after generation by a people produce? What impact have these ordeals had on African Americans today? Dr. Joy DeGruy, answers these questions and more. With over thirty years of practical experience as a professional in the mental health field, Dr. DeGruy encourages African Americans to view their attitudes, assumptions, and behaviors through the lens of history and so gain a greater understanding of how centuries of slavery and oppression have impacted people of African descent in America. Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome helps to lay the necessary foundation to ensure the well-being and sustained health of future generations and provides a rare glimpse into the evolution of society's beliefs, feelings, attitudes and behavior concerning race in America.

Book Description :

This is the first book to define and explore Black fatigue, the intergenerational impact of systemic racism on the physical and psychological health of Black people—and explain why and how society needs to collectively do more to combat its pernicious effects. Black people, young and old, are fatigued, says award-winning diversity and inclusion leader Mary-Frances Winters. It is physically, mentally, and emotionally draining to continue to experience inequities and even atrocities, day after day, when justice is a God-given and legislated right. And it is exhausting to have to constantly explain this to white people, even—and especially—well-meaning white people, who fall prey to white fragility and too often are unwittingly complicit in upholding the very systems they say they want dismantled. This book, designed to illuminate the myriad dire consequences of “living while Black,” came at the urging of Winters's Black friends and colleagues. Winters describes how in every aspect of life—from economics to education, work, criminal justice, and, very importantly, health outcomes—for the most part, the trajectory for Black people is not improving. It is paradoxical that, with all the attention focused over the last fifty years on social justice and diversity and inclusion, little progress has been made in actualizing the vision of an equitable society. Black people are quite literally sick and tired of being sick and tired. Winters writes that “my hope for this book is that it will provide a comprehensive summary of the consequences of Black fatigue, and awaken activism in those who care about equity and justice—those who care that intergenerational fatigue is tearing at the very core of a whole race of people who are simply asking for what they deserve.”

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

The purpose of this book is to explain how the intergenerational trauma derived from slavery segregation, and insidious racial animus has impacted on today's African Americans. The psychological abnormalities or deviances are examined from their root causes. Masking of the resulting conditions are perused for their socioeconomic implications. Independent reasoning and the appropriate setting for its development are suggested. In addition, awareness of the greatness of our ancient legacy is presented to break the psychological chains causing Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (PTSS). The book describes how PTSS leads to abnormal bouts with rage and abusive behavior, mostly against other blacks. Awareness of the trauma often leads to denial through greater reliance on defensive behavior that departs from reality. PTSS is triggered both internally and through DNA memory and externally by the racially hostile society that we live in. Research on this subject by Dr. Joy De Gray is reviewed and analyzed. An unexamined PTSS in denial is traced to mental slavery that causes dependency and identification with victimizers. This mental slavery is based on fear and inferiority complex that produces distorted views of self. Liberation and enslavement become indistinguishable. Individuals become psychologically self-destructive, a burden to themselves, loved ones, and society. Options to find "the better angels" of our true history to break PTSS's cycle and resulting impact are presented.

Book Description :

NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD WINNER • The first full history of Black America’s shocking mistreatment as unwilling and unwitting experimental subjects at the hands of the medical establishment. No one concerned with issues of public health and racial justice can afford not to read this masterful book. "[Washington] has unearthed a shocking amount of information and shaped it into a riveting, carefully documented book." —New York Times From the era of slavery to the present day, starting with the earliest encounters between Black Americans and Western medical researchers and the racist pseudoscience that resulted, Medical Apartheid details the ways both slaves and freedmen were used in hospitals for experiments conducted without their knowledge—a tradition that continues today within some black populations. It reveals how Blacks have historically been prey to grave-robbing as well as unauthorized autopsies and dissections. Moving into the twentieth century, it shows how the pseudoscience of eugenics and social Darwinism was used to justify experimental exploitation and shoddy medical treatment of Blacks. Shocking new details about the government’s notorious Tuskegee experiment are revealed, as are similar, less-well-known medical atrocities conducted by the government, the armed forces, prisons, and private institutions. The product of years of prodigious research into medical journals and experimental reports long undisturbed, Medical Apartheid reveals the hidden underbelly of scientific research and makes possible, for the first time, an understanding of the roots of the African American health deficit. At last, it provides the fullest possible context for comprehending the behavioral fallout that has caused Black Americans to view researchers—and indeed the whole medical establishment—with such deep distrust.

Book Description :

"With laser-like precision, Graham fuses together our collective cultural memory and experience as he captivatingly describes "the contract" so many of us sign. A tacit agreement to don the cloak of cultural invisibility in exchange for the basement keys to the palace." - Dr. Joy A. DeGruy, author of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome Written to speak for those who've been without a voice throughout their professional career, Plantation Theory: The Black Professional's Struggle Between Freedom & Security showcases the realities that countless Black corporate professionals face despite best efforts to prove their worthiness of opportunity. It challenges the status quo and urges future generations of Black excellence to recognize how much power they wield and evaluate closely the benefits and the detractors of choosing to work in Corporate America. From cover to cover, Black professionals are faced with an urgent question-why work twice as hard for half the recognition and a third of the pay? Filled with transparent and often shocking firsthand accounts, Plantation Theory also serves as a veil remover for those in positions of privilege and power as they embark on a journey of abolition rather than allyship. For individuals and corporations, it demands a commitment to end participation in the behaviors perpetuating inequitable environments. Graham pointedly places the accountability squarely on the shoulders of those most responsible and asks will marketing to Black and diverse talent match the reality of the daily lived experience they will soon call reality as employees? Or will these entities engage in adequate self-examination, heartfelt contemplation, and reflective discussions to do the hard work of no longer being a sideline participant in the marathon of inequity. For Black professionals, the vision for the future will require a confrontation with the notion of freedom versus security. For companies and individuals in privileged positions of power, performative measures and diversity theater are no longer enough. Graham's Plantation Theory reminds us that historical approaches are no longer viable pathways to what must become. It's no longer a matter of capability, but of willingness. There is much work to be done for the willing.

Book Description :

Volume 3 of 3 books starts with the world-class African Empires of Europe's Middle Ages. Black Africans experienced the height of global civilization, wealth, influence and hegemony. White Europeans lived in squalor, poverty, unsanitary conditions, ignorance, illiteracy and barbarism. Black Moors would occupy and civilize much of Western and Southern Europe bring civilization, hygiene, literacy and order through inbreed dynasties and nobility. Their progeny controlled the Christian Church and worshipped black deities. Resentment arose among the Germanic subjects to the absolute rule and faith controlled by their saviors who were Black Moors. That rule was challenged and overturned by the Protestant Reformation, Thirty and Hundred Year Wars, and popular revolutions that either removed the African monarchs or restricted their authority to symbolism of tradition. All cosmetic races of this black rule were purged. Subsequently, the ideology of "scientific racism" emerged to classify blacks as intellectual and physical inferior to whites and incapable of ruling the so-called dominant melanin-less race. Black Africans were written-out of history and humanity. The conquest and destruction of African civilization facilitated this subordination. The depopulation of Africans to the Americas as slaves to maximize wealth and build capital facilitated the dehumanization effort while transforming Europeans from utter poverty to wealthiest population on the planet. Yet, the seeds of their racist transformation planted itself in its own self-destruction that unfolding in the 21st century. Wealth built on slavery or slave wages evolved to the outsourcing of jobs to generate enormous capital for elites. It also brought about terrorism, enormous treasure spent on was and domestic security, destruction of the standard of living, the demise of the infrastructure and the quality of life. The impoverished "others" vital to the generations of wealth are furthered dehumanized and scapegoated. Western nations turn towards isolation bordering on feudalism engulfing much of Medieval Europe not occupied by Africa's global hegemony promoted by Black Moors. Low-information white Westerners led by xenophobic, racist, nationalists, like Donald J. Trump and David Duke, are unaware of the true lessons of history that diversity, trade and exchange of ideas built world-class empires and sustainable wealth. The nativism they offer retards progress, redirects it toward stagnation and backwardness into feudalism, tribalism and return to the caves and primitivism.

Book Description :

America's problem with race has deep roots, with the country's foundation tied to the near extermination of one race of people and the enslavement of another. Racism is truly our nation's original sin. "It's time we right this unacceptable wrong," says bestselling author and leading Christian activist Jim Wallis. Fifty years ago, Wallis was driven away from his faith by a white church that considered dealing with racism to be taboo. His participation in the civil rights movement brought him back when he discovered a faith that commands racial justice. Yet as recent tragedies confirm, we continue to suffer from the legacy of racism. The old patterns of white privilege are colliding with the changing demographics of a diverse nation. The church has been slow to respond, and Sunday morning is still the most segregated hour of the week. In America's Original Sin, Wallis offers a prophetic and deeply personal call to action in overcoming the racism so ingrained in American society. He speaks candidly to Christians--particularly white Christians--urging them to cross a new bridge toward racial justice and healing. Whenever divided cultures and gridlocked power structures fail to end systemic sin, faith communities can help lead the way to grassroots change. Probing yet positive, biblically rooted yet highly practical, this book shows people of faith how they can work together to overcome the embedded racism in America, galvanizing a movement to cross the bridge to a multiracial church and a new America.
