Book Description :

One group that has received little attention in the psychological literature, with regards to issues of race as related to the practice of psychology, is the military. The military is a unique cultural entity that most people think provides soldiers of African descent with the system and resources they need to serve in the U.S. military. Author, Janetra Johnson, had chronological over a decade of National Guard history, in which she discovered the National Guard erroneously maintained a deregulated EEO and AEP program.Janetra is a military veteran and she fought the Guard over its deregulated pay policy during the California National Guards largest financial crisis. The California National Guard's recruiting bonus controversy was the largest known financial calamity and it had received little attention.Inside the book, Janetra walks her readers through the process of how she dealt with those financial thoughts of slavery and the Jim Crow era. The book is written from the perspective of a veteran of African descent, who had experienced Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (PTSS) while serving in the California Air National Guard and has managed to experience a great reduction of these symptoms over the years. The book tells the story of how she found out about PTSS.What is Post Traumatic Slave Disorder?According to Wikipedia, Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America's Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing (PTSS) is a 2005 book resulting from years of historical and psychological research by Dr. Joy DeGruy (née Leary), Ph.D. PTSS describes a set of behaviors, beliefs and actions associated with or, related to multi-generational trauma experienced by African Americans that include but are not limited to undiagnosed and untreated Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in enslaved Africans and their descendants. PTSS posits that centuries of slavery in the United States, followed by systemic and structural racism and oppression, including lynching, Jim Crow laws, and unwarranted mass incarceration, have resulted in multigenerational maladaptive behaviors, which originated as survival strategies."ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Janetra Johnson studied the African American culture during slavery and the Jim Crow era. She also studied women rights. She earned a Bachelors in Philosophy, Pre-law, and a Masters degree in Business Administration. She had written a series of books about her experiences in the California National Guard. These books were written from the perspective of an African American veteran.

Book Description :

This interpretive qualitative study used Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (PTSS) and Bowen Family Systems (BFST) theories to explore mental health service use by African Americans. The goal of the study was two-fold. First, to increase understanding of the lived experiences of African Americans, with consideration of the impact of historical and ongoing race and oppression, across generations. Second, to explore mental health service use via the lens of the African American experience. Data collection included the use of two semi-structured interviews, a focused genogram and a demographic questionnaire. All participants self-identified as African American and were comprised of seven females and two males. The data analysis revealed themes in two main categories: The African American Experience and Conversations about Mental Health. The resulting themes as follows, with four in the first category and three in the second, respectively: ongoing racism and oppression, symptoms of PTSS, strength and character, The Talk, types of sharing, perception and the service use advocate. The findings provide the context through which the African American experience influences mental health service use.

Book Description :

I describe in this book how the Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome has historically and currently affected my own family, and subsequently many other Black families. The book suggests that pre-slavery, Middle Passage, post-slavery, and modern-day conditions contributed to the Black family’s pathologies. It goes on to demonstrate the manifestation of some of these specific problems in my family that has been caused by these historical conditions. It shows how the past continues to write on the slate of today. It also implies that the Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome will continue to affect the Black family in the distant future.

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 :

The purpose of Volume II of "From Post-Traumatic Slave Syndrome to Self-Determination and Greatness" is to describe how and when this intergenerational trauma was established after tens of thousands of Black African global hegemonies. The trauma began when the foundations of modern civilization were stolen numerous Aryan invaders, including Indo-European Arabs that now inhabit the Northeast African Sub-Continent (today's Middle East) and Kemet (today's Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, and Somali). The current result of these invasions is ideology of white supremacy and racism that denies Africans in Diaspora and on the continent their quest for self-determination, knowledge of their past greatness, and intergenerational trauma that has altered the mindset of the unaware. This volume starts by describing how Africa ruled the Ancient World on all seven continents. Africa is cited as the root of all modern religion, particularly Christianity. Images of artifacts, paintings, and icons of a Black Madonna and Christ held in Europe's and Russia's cathedrals are depicted. These artistic renditions were created more than 1,000 years ago, closest to the death of Jesus Christ and construction of the New Testament, before racially transformed versions were remade within the last 500 years. This and other evidence suggest that Jesus and his twelve disciples were black like today's African-Americans and Africans residing in Sub-Saharan Africa. DNA evidence supporting this suggestion is explained. The argument that the people depicted in the Christian bible, its prophets, and Ancient Hebrews were Black Africans indistinguishable from today's African-Americans and Sub-Saharan cousins. Evidence to this argument is cited and presented from biblical scriptures. The book moves through time from the Ancient World to the Middle Ages prior to onset of African slavery where inbreed Africans were seeders and saviors of civilization in Europe derived from Ancient Africa. These inbreed Africans who resulted from 700 years of intermarriage with Aryan inhabitants and occupation by Black Moorish Overlords became Europe's royalty, nobility, ad leading churchmen. Their rule was challenged by the Reformation by populist Europeans who wanted to nationalize Christianity and break that connection between church and state by inbreed blacks. As part of the racial transformation of history, the Reformation is portrayed as a purely religious movement rather than a race war that would justify African slavery, colonization, and imperialism. Evidence is presented that the inbreed African royalty held on to their rule to the mid-19th century. The book describes how breaking the hold of the African hegemony led to the generation of wealth extracted from six of seven continents into Western Europe through human exploitation (thief, slavery, genocide, and post-traumatic slave syndrome).

Black Fatigue

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.”

Book Description :

Understanding the explosive protests over police killings and the legacy of racism Following the high-profile deaths of eighteen-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and twenty-five-year-old Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland, both cities erupted in protest over the unjustified homicides of unarmed black males at the hands of police officers. These local tragedies—and the protests surrounding them—assumed national significance, igniting fierce debate about the fairness and efficacy of the American criminal justice system. Yet, outside the gaze of mainstream attention, how do local residents and protestors in Ferguson and Baltimore understand their own experiences with race, place, and policing? In Hands Up, Don’t Shoot, Jennifer Cobbina draws on in-depth interviews with nearly two hundred residents of Ferguson and Baltimore, conducted within two months of the deaths of Brown and Gray. She examines how protestors in both cities understood their experiences with the police, how those experiences influenced their perceptions of policing, what galvanized Black Lives Matter as a social movement, and how policing tactics during demonstrations influenced subsequent mobilization decisions among protesters. Ultimately, she humanizes people’s deep and abiding anger, underscoring how a movement emerged to denounce both racial biases by police and the broader economic and social system that has stacked the deck against young black civilians. Hands Up, Don’t Shoot is a remarkably current, on-the-ground assessment of the powerful, protestor-driven movement around race, justice, and policing in America.

Book Description :

This collection of essays surveys the practices, behaviors, and beliefs that developed during slavery in the Western Hemisphere, and the lingering psychological consequences that continue to impact the descendants of enslaved Africans today. The psychological legacies of slavery highlighted in this volume were found independently in Brazil, the U.S., Belize, Jamaica, Colombia, Haiti, and Martinique. They are color prejudice, self and community disdain, denial of trauma, black-on-black violence, survival crime, child beating, underlying African spirituality, and use of music and dance as community psychotherapy. The effects on descendants of slave owners include a belief in white supremacy, dehumanization of self and others, gun violence, and more. Essays also offer solutions for dealing with this vast psychological legacy. Knowledge of the continuing effects of slavery has been used in psychotherapy, family, and group counseling of African slave descendants. Progress in resolving these legacies has been made as well using psychohistory, forensic psychiatry, family social histories, and community mental health. This knowledge is crucial to eventual reconciliation and resolution of the continuing legacies of slavery and the slave trade.

Book Description :

Witnessing Whiteness invites educators to consider what it means to be white, describes and critiques strategies used to avoid race issues, and identifies the detrimental effect of avoiding race on cross-race collaborations. The author illustrates how racial discomfort leads white educators toward ineffective teaching pedagogy and poor relationships with students and colleagues of color. Questioning the implications our history has for educational institutions, school reform efforts, and diversity initiatives, this book considers political, economic, socio-cultural, and legal histories that shaped the meanings associated with whiteness. Drawing on dialogue with well-known figures within education, race, and multicultural work, the book offers intimate, personal stories of cross-race friendships that address both how a deep understanding of whiteness supports cross-race collaboration and the long-term nature of the work of excising racism from the deep psyche. Concluding chapters offer practical information on building knowledge, skills, capacities, and communities that support anti-racism practices, a hopeful look at our collective future, and a discussion of how to create a culture of witnessing educators who support allies for social and racial justice.
