The body is where our instincts reside and where we fight, flee or freeze and it endures the trauma inflicted by the ills that plague society. In this ground-breaking work, therapist, Menakem, examines the damage caused by racism in America from the perspective of body-centred psychology. He argues this destruction will continue until Americans learn to heal the generational anguish of white supremacy, which is deeply embedded in all American bodies. This collective agony doesn't just affect African Americans. White Americans suffer their own secondary trauma as well. So do blue Americans - the police.

My Grandmother`s Hands is a call to action for everyone to recognise that racism is not about the head, but about the body and introduces an alternative view of what everyone can do to grow beyond this entrenched racialised divide. * Paves the way for a new, body-centred understanding of white supremacy - how it is literally in the blood and the nervous system. * Offers a step-by-step solution - a healing process - in addition to incisive social commentary.
