Publisher Description:

A vital, transformative study of the damage caused by racism from the perspective of trauma and body-centred psychology.

The consequences of racism can be found in our bodies - in skin and sinew, in bone and blood. In this ground-breaking work, therapist Resmaa Menakem examines the damage, the physical consequences of discrimination, from the perspective of body-centred psychology. He argues that until we learn to heal and overcome the generational anguish of white supremacy, we will all continue to bear its scars.

My Grandmother's Hands is an extraordinary call to action for all of us to recognize that racism effects not only the mind, but also the body, and introduces an alternative view of what we can do to grow beyond our racial divides.

'A revolutionary work of beauty, brilliance, compassion and ultimately, hope . . . I believe this book will change the direction of the movement for racial justice' Robin DiAngelo, author of White Fragility'
