Resmaa Menakem – Racialized Trauma

Subscribe. Watch. Listen.




Resmaa Menakem is a Healer, New York Times Best-Selling Author, and Trauma Specialist. He helps people, communities, and organizations find strength in healing that is holistic and resilient. He helps people rise through the suffering’s edge. He is a cultural trauma navigator, a communal provocateur and coach.

I first heard Resmaa on my friend Jayson Gaddis’ podcast, and I was completely inspired and transformed. After reading his novel My Grandmothers Hands, I knew I needed to have him on this show. This conversation on racialized trauma will transform you, educate you, and move you. You do not want to miss this one.

In Resmaa’s words, “Moving from race to culture to creation is important, transformative, and takes work. And a lot of reps.”
