Grieving the pain of racial loss

Posted By: Virginia Stead on July 29, 2019
Dr. Zeus concludes, "A pedagogy of racial melancholia imagines ways of entering melancholia to stay with, rather than leave, the pain of racial loss." This reminds me of how Mark Wolynn's insights into healing from inherited trauma (It Didn't Start With You) might provide hope for the lessening of racialized pain through grieving. How many generations this will take requires all of us to confront our own privileging and marginalization as an emotionally efficient strategy for building a just society.
