Under the editorial leadership of Dr. Kevin Cokley, students, scholars, psychologists, and community activists joined together to offer diverse perspectives on confronting systemic racism rooted in Anti-Blackness. This multi-disciplinary effort resulted in the text: Making Black Lives Matter: Confronting Anti-Black Racism. A Healing Paradigm (AHP) will host a 7-month series, March - October 2022 based on the book. Many of the authors in addition to several thought leaders will join us for a series of virtual discussions regarding innovative strategies for confronting Anti-Blackness, authentic Anti-racist action, and self-care. The bi-monthly author talks can be viewed live and on-demand.
In addition to attending the virtual discussions, participants have the opportunity to engage in our small group Deep Dive sessions facilitated by mental health professionals and Mbongis (community gatherings to discuss an issue) that include thought leaders such as Dr. Mawiyah Kambon, Dr. Thomas Parham, and student-scholar-activists of the next generation.
The series also offers virtual wellness activities and a resource library to support you in caring for your psychological wellbeing as you confront Anti-Blackness. We will end the series with an in-person ancestral walk led by historian Dr. Kenja McCray in Savannah, Georgia.
Psychologists, social workers, counselors, and school psychologists can earn up to 45 continuing education credits (CE's). Educators, activists, and others can earn professional development credit. Check the fee schedule for the relevant pricing.
