Healing Is the Revolution by Denese Shervington MD, Mph
This book invites "readers into a discussion of the nameable and unnamable struggles African Americans face in a tense, high stress, and despairing existence in the United States. It begins by laying bare Black American history and why it continues to affect modern day African Americans mentally and physically. Along the way it illustrates the effects of decades of compounding structural oppression, societal disfranchisement, and psychological backlash on individuals living in an environment where hate speech and hate-driven actions and policy are no longer underground ... It also [provides] steps and opportunity for healing on the individual, family, and community level. It reveals opportunities for action and motivation for change. And it guides the reader through inspirational and motivational activities to support this renewed and/or continued struggle"--Back cover.
