From the Publisher:

In this groundbreaking book, therapist Resmaa Menakem examines the damage caused by racism in America from the perspective of trauma and body-centered psychology. “My Grandmother’s Hands” is a call to action for all of us to recognize that racism is not only about the head, but about the body and introduces an alternative view of what we can do to grow beyond our entrenched racialized divide.
