The enduring effects of slavery and institutional racism

tottenham002Nearly 300 people promptly arrived at 9am to listen to a unique conversation & workshop led by Dr. Joy DeGruy last Saturday.  Sharing images and stories from two hundred years of the slave trade, with insightful comments on the psychological process people employed during the period, Dr DeGruy then led the audience into a conversation on how to practically tackle some of the enduring effects today, poor motivation of children in schools, violence amongst young men in our communities, redefining values such as ‘respect’ into a historical context. We shall shortly upload a video from the day, but in the meantime you can watch a previous talk here on youtube.
