TownTalks: Racial Trauma and Mental Health

August 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

“But all our phrasing — race relations, racial chasm, racial justice, racial profiling, white privilege, even white supremacy — serves to obscure that racism is a visceral experience, that it dislodges brains, blocks airways, rips muscle, extracts organs, cracks bones, breaks teeth… You must always remember that the sociology, the history, the economics, the graphs, the charts, the regressions all land, with great violence, upon the body.” —Ta-Nehisi Coates,

Moderated by Rubén Vázquez, Vice President of Racial Justice and Public Policy at YWCA Minneapolis. Featuring Brandon Johnson, Twin Cities psychotherapist, professor, and consultant; and Terri Karis, psychologist, therapist and Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Stout
