In preparation for Dr. DeGruy’s keynote address, the MLK Committee will be hosting the MLK Book Club Discussion around her book Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome — America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing. This community discussion is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 22, from noon to 1 pm and will be facilitated by Lareese Hall, director of libraries, and Chris Asch, professor of history and CANMP executive director. Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome lays the groundwork for understanding how the past has influenced the present and opens up the discussion about how we can not only eliminate non-productive attitudes, beliefs, and adaptive behaviors, but also build upon the strengths we have gained from the past to heal injuries of today.
