An Antiracist Take on Oppression and Sorro

Grief and trauma are universal experiences, but people suffer additional trauma unique to their race, gender, and sexual identities. According to Breeshia, when grief is not explored directly, when we ignore our personal responsibility to tend to, reckon with, and heal our own grief, we are more likely to engage in harmful power dynamics that deny others—particularly marginalized populations—access to justice and healing.

She both reimagines our relationship to power, accountability, and boundaries, pointing to the long-term work we must do in order to address systemic trauma perpetuated within our interpersonal relationships, as well as elucidates grief in every aspect of our lives, providing a map back to ourselves and allowing us to heal our innate wholeness.

Join Breeshia in a conversation about her life, her work, and her latest book, Grieving While Black: An Antiracist Take on Oppression and Sorrow.
