Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome Book Review:

In the 16th century, the beginning of African enslavement in the Americas until the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment and emancipation in 1865, Africans were hunted like animals, captured, sold, tortured, and raped. They experienced the worst kind of physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual abuse. Given such history, isn't it likely that many of the enslaved were severely traumatized? And did the trauma and the effects of such horrific abuse end with the abolition of slavery? Emancipation was followed by one hundred more years of institutionalized subjugation through the enactment of Black Codes and Jim Crow laws, peonage, convict leasing, domestic terrorism and lynching. Today the violations continue, and when combined with the crimes of the past, they result in yet unmeasured injury. What do repeated traumas, endured generation after generation by a people produce? What impact have these ordeals had on African Americans today? Dr. Joy DeGruy, answers these questions and more. With over thirty years of practical experience as a professional in the mental health field, Dr. DeGruy encourages African Americans to view their attitudes, assumptions, and behaviors through the lens of history and so gain a greater understanding of how centuries of slavery and oppression have impacted people of African descent in America. Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome helps to lay the necessary foundation to ensure the well-being and sustained health of future generations and provides a rare glimpse into the evolution of society's beliefs, feelings, attitudes and behavior concerning race in America.

Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome Book Review:

One group that has received little attention in the psychological literature, with regards to issues of race as related to the practice of psychology, is the military. The military is a unique cultural entity that most people think provides soldiers of African descent with the system and resources they need to serve in the U.S. military. Author, Janetra Johnson, had chronological over a decade of National Guard history, in which she discovered the National Guard erroneously maintained a deregulated EEO and AEP program.Janetra is a military veteran and she fought the Guard over its deregulated pay policy during the California National Guards largest financial crisis. The California National Guard's recruiting bonus controversy was the largest known financial calamity and it had received little attention.Inside the book, Janetra walks her readers through the process of how she dealt with those financial thoughts of slavery and the Jim Crow era. The book is written from the perspective of a veteran of African descent, who had experienced Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (PTSS) while serving in the California Air National Guard and has managed to experience a great reduction of these symptoms over the years. The book tells the story of how she found out about PTSS.What is Post Traumatic Slave Disorder?According to Wikipedia, Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America's Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing (PTSS) is a 2005 book resulting from years of historical and psychological research by Dr. Joy DeGruy (née Leary), Ph.D. PTSS describes a set of behaviors, beliefs and actions associated with or, related to multi-generational trauma experienced by African Americans that include but are not limited to undiagnosed and untreated Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in enslaved Africans and their descendants. PTSS posits that centuries of slavery in the United States, followed by systemic and structural racism and oppression, including lynching, Jim Crow laws, and unwarranted mass incarceration, have resulted in multigenerational maladaptive behaviors, which originated as survival strategies."ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Janetra Johnson studied the African American culture during slavery and the Jim Crow era. She also studied women rights. She earned a Bachelors in Philosophy, Pre-law, and a Masters degree in Business Administration. She had written a series of books about her experiences in the California National Guard. These books were written from the perspective of an African American veteran.

Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome and Mental Health Service Use of African Americans Book Review:

This interpretive qualitative study used Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (PTSS) and Bowen Family Systems (BFST) theories to explore mental health service use by African Americans. The goal of the study was two-fold. First, to increase understanding of the lived experiences of African Americans, with consideration of the impact of historical and ongoing race and oppression, across generations. Second, to explore mental health service use via the lens of the African American experience. Data collection included the use of two semi-structured interviews, a focused genogram and a demographic questionnaire. All participants self-identified as African American and were comprised of seven females and two males. The data analysis revealed themes in two main categories: The African American Experience and Conversations about Mental Health. The resulting themes as follows, with four in the first category and three in the second, respectively: ongoing racism and oppression, symptoms of PTSS, strength and character, The Talk, types of sharing, perception and the service use advocate. The findings provide the context through which the African American experience influences mental health service use.

Got My Own Song to Sing Book Review:

I describe in this book how the Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome has historically and currently affected my own family, and subsequently many other Black families. The book suggests that pre-slavery, Middle Passage, post-slavery, and modern-day conditions contributed to the Black family’s pathologies. It goes on to demonstrate the manifestation of some of these specific problems in my family that has been caused by these historical conditions. It shows how the past continues to write on the slate of today. It also implies that the Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome will continue to affect the Black family in the distant future.

From Post-Traumatic Slave Syndrome to Self-Determination and Greatness Book Review:

The purpose of Volume II of "From Post-Traumatic Slave Syndrome to Self-Determination and Greatness" is to describe how and when this intergenerational trauma was established after tens of thousands of Black African global hegemonies. The trauma began when the foundations of modern civilization were stolen numerous Aryan invaders, including Indo-European Arabs that now inhabit the Northeast African Sub-Continent (today's Middle East) and Kemet (today's Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, and Somali). The current result of these invasions is ideology of white supremacy and racism that denies Africans in Diaspora and on the continent their quest for self-determination, knowledge of their past greatness, and intergenerational trauma that has altered the mindset of the unaware. This volume starts by describing how Africa ruled the Ancient World on all seven continents. Africa is cited as the root of all modern religion, particularly Christianity. Images of artifacts, paintings, and icons of a Black Madonna and Christ held in Europe's and Russia's cathedrals are depicted. These artistic renditions were created more than 1,000 years ago, closest to the death of Jesus Christ and construction of the New Testament, before racially transformed versions were remade within the last 500 years. This and other evidence suggest that Jesus and his twelve disciples were black like today's African-Americans and Africans residing in Sub-Saharan Africa. DNA evidence supporting this suggestion is explained. The argument that the people depicted in the Christian bible, its prophets, and Ancient Hebrews were Black Africans indistinguishable from today's African-Americans and Sub-Saharan cousins. Evidence to this argument is cited and presented from biblical scriptures. The book moves through time from the Ancient World to the Middle Ages prior to onset of African slavery where inbreed Africans were seeders and saviors of civilization in Europe derived from Ancient Africa. These inbreed Africans who resulted from 700 years of intermarriage with Aryan inhabitants and occupation by Black Moorish Overlords became Europe's royalty, nobility, ad leading churchmen. Their rule was challenged by the Reformation by populist Europeans who wanted to nationalize Christianity and break that connection between church and state by inbreed blacks. As part of the racial transformation of history, the Reformation is portrayed as a purely religious movement rather than a race war that would justify African slavery, colonization, and imperialism. Evidence is presented that the inbreed African royalty held on to their rule to the mid-19th century. The book describes how breaking the hold of the African hegemony led to the generation of wealth extracted from six of seven continents into Western Europe through human exploitation (thief, slavery, genocide, and post-traumatic slave syndrome).

Cultural Trauma Book Review:

In this book, Ron Eyerman explores the formation of the African-American identity through the theory of cultural trauma. The trauma in question is slavery, not as an institution or as personal experience, but as collective memory: a pervasive remembrance that grounded a people's sense of itself. Combining a broad narrative sweep with more detailed studies of important events and individuals, Eyerman reaches from Emancipation through the Harlem Renaissance, the Depression, the New Deal and the Second World War to the Civil Rights movement and beyond. He offers insights into the intellectual and generational conflicts of identity-formation which have a truly universal significance, as well as providing a compelling account of the birth of African-American identity. Anyone interested in questions of assimilation, multiculturalism and postcolonialism will find this book indispensable.

Statement of Regret Book Review:

Kwaku Mackenzie, founder of a Black policy think tank, hits the bottle after his father's death. As media interest in the once dynamic Institute fades, his team grows fractious and then, disastrously, he favours a young Oxford scholar over his own devastated son. When, in a vain attempt to regain influence, he publicly champions division within the Black community, the consequences are shattering. Kwame Kwei-Armah's third play for the National Theatre opens in November 2007 and takes a punchy, provocative look at the Black British experience and the need, or not, for solidarity.

Gather at the Table Book Review:

Two people—a black woman and a white man—confront the legacy of slavery and racism head-on “We embarked on this journey because we believe America must overcome the racial barriers that divide us, the barriers that drive us to strike out at one another out of ignorance and fear. To do nothing is unacceptable.” Sharon Leslie Morgan, a black woman from Chicago’s South Side avoids white people; they scare her. Despite her trepidation, Morgan, a descendent of slaves on both sides of her family, began a journey toward racial reconciliation with Thomas Norman DeWolf, a white man from rural Oregon who descends from the largest slave-trading dynasty in US history. Over a three-year period, the pair traveled thousands of miles, both overseas and through twenty-seven states, visiting ancestral towns, courthouses, cemeteries, plantations, antebellum mansions, and historic sites. They spent time with one another’s families and friends and engaged in deep conversations about how the lingering trauma of slavery shaped their lives. Gather at the Table is the chronicle of DeWolf and Morgan’s journey. Arduous and at times uncomfortable, it lays bare the unhealed wounds of slavery. As DeWolf and Morgan demonstrate, before we can overcome racism we must first acknowledge and understand the damage inherited from the past—which invariably involves confronting painful truths. The result is a revelatory testament to the possibilities that open up when people commit to truth, justice, and reconciliation. DeWolf and Morgan offer readers an inspiring vision and a powerful model for healing individuals and communities.

Real Queer America Book Review:

LAMBDA LITERARY AWARD FINALIST A transgender reporter's "powerful, profoundly moving" narrative tour through the surprisingly vibrant queer communities sprouting up in red states (New York Times Book Review), offering a vision of a stronger, more humane America. Ten years ago, Samantha Allen was a suit-and-tie-wearing Mormon missionary. Now she's a GLAAD Award-winning journalist happily married to another woman. A lot in her life has changed, but what hasn't changed is her deep love of Red State America, and of queer people who stay in so-called "flyover country" rather than moving to the liberal coasts. In Real Queer America, Allen takes us on a cross-country road-trip stretching all the way from Provo, Utah to the Rio Grande Valley to the Bible Belt to the Deep South. Her motto for the trip: "Something gay every day." Making pit stops at drag shows, political rallies, and hubs of queer life across the heartland, she introduces us to scores of extraordinary LGBT people working for change, from the first openly transgender mayor in Texas history to the manager of the only queer night club in Bloomington, Indiana, and many more. Capturing profound cultural shifts underway in unexpected places and revealing a national network of chosen family fighting for a better world, Real Queer America is a treasure trove of uplifting stories and a much-needed source of hope and inspiration in these divided times.

Lay My Burden Down Book Review:

"A remarkable achievement." —Harriet A. Washington, The New England Journal of Medicine Through stories (including their own), interviews, and analysis of the most recent data available, Dr. Alvin Poussaint and journalist Amy Alexander offer a groundbreaking look at "posttraumatic slavery syndrome," the unique physical and emotional perils for black people that are the legacy of slavery and persistent racism. They examine the historical, cultural, and social factors that make many blacks reluctant to seek health care, and cite ways that everyone from the layperson to the health care provider can help. "As a black woman thrashing with the new class divide and an intermittent but chronic depression that feels as old as rivers, I found [Lay My Burden Down] a relief, an assured voice in a wilderness [that] I felt I was essentially wandering alone." —Erin Aubry Kaplan, Salon "A persuasive moral indictment of the mental-health establishment for not working harder to rid itself of prejudicial images of African-Americans within its own practices, and to address them in earnest in the larger society." —Matthew V. Johnson, The Christian Century "A stunner of a book. . . . The positive message here is that these scourges can be prevented." —Leon Eisenberg, M.D., coauthor of Children in a Changing Health System

Medical Apartheid Book Review:

From the era of slavery to the present day, the first full history of black America’s shocking mistreatment as unwilling and unwitting experimental subjects at the hands of the medical establishment. Medical Apartheid is the first and only comprehensive history of medical experimentation on African Americans. Starting with the earliest encounters between black Americans and Western medical researchers and the racist pseudoscience that resulted, it details the ways both slaves and freedmen were used in hospitals for experiments conducted without their knowledge—a tradition that continues today within some black populations. It reveals how blacks have historically been prey to grave-robbing as well as unauthorized autopsies and dissections. Moving into the twentieth century, it shows how the pseudoscience of eugenics and social Darwinism was used to justify experimental exploitation and shoddy medical treatment of blacks, and the view that they were biologically inferior, oversexed, and unfit for adult responsibilities. Shocking new details about the government’s notorious Tuskegee experiment are revealed, as are similar, less-well-known medical atrocities conducted by the government, the armed forces, prisons, and private institutions. The product of years of prodigious research into medical journals and experimental reports long undisturbed, Medical Apartheid reveals the hidden underbelly of scientific research and makes possible, for the first time, an understanding of the roots of the African American health deficit. At last, it provides the fullest possible context for comprehending the behavioral fallout that has caused black Americans to view researchers—and indeed the whole medical establishment—with such deep distrust. No one concerned with issues of public health and racial justice can afford not to read Medical Apartheid, a masterful book that will stir up both controversy and long-needed debate.

International Handbook of Multigenerational Legacies of Trauma Book Review:

In this extraordinary new text, the contributors explore the enduring legacy of such social shocks as war, genocide, slavery, tyranny, crime, and disease. Among the cases addressed are: instances of genocide in Turkey, Cambodia, and Russia, the plight of the families of Holocaust survivors, atomic bomb survivors in Japan, and even the children of Nazis, the long-term effects associated with the Vietnam War and the war in Yugoslavia, and the psychology arising from the legacy of slavery in America.
