My Grandmother's Hands is a call to action for all of us to recognize that racism is not about the head, but about the body, and introduces an alternative view of what we can do to grow beyond our entrenched racialized divide.
Paves the way for a new, body-centered understanding of white supremacy - how it is literally in our blood and our nervous system
Offers a step-by-step solution - a healing process- in addition to incisive social commentary

urgent and important
this book will, if humans survive their self inflicted crisis, become one of the cornerstones of our healing -- looking back we will wonder how this basic information, about how human mammals cope and cover up their trauma, about how to restore the body after trauma, was so out of reach of the common people for so long.
no more! this book brings what we need to know now.

I am reading (listening) to this book for the second time. I am a licensed social worker by profession, but the information presented and its applications for the community at large are tremendous. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book!
