Contact for additional info: 

Four centuries of systemic racism in the United States urges us to understand its history, our part in it, and how it continues to injure Black communities today. Will you join the NYFA LA Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council for the next event in our ongoing screening and discussion series, Systemic Racism: From Slavery to Incarceration? We will watch Dr. Joy DeGruy Leary: Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome, followed by a discussion facilitated by Denise Hamilton. 

 

How to participate in the Systemic Racism: From Slavery to Incarceration screening series and discussion:

 

  1. Watch Dr. Joy DeGruy Leary: Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome prior to Tuesday, July 14th 7:30 p.m. PT.

    • Date/Time: Prior to Tuesday, July 14th 7:30 p.m. PT.

    • How to Watch: YouTube

    • Description: Dr. Joy DeGruy has done 12 years of research, resulting in her book on Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome--a theory of the multi-generational trauma experienced by African Americans that leads to undiagnosed and untreated posttraumatic stress disorder in enslaved Africans and their descendants. Learn more at Dr. Joy DeGruy’s website

 

  1. Join the Discussion on Systemic Racism: From Slavery to Incarceration.  We will be referencing Dr. Joy DeGruy’s Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome video, therefore it’s recommended this film is watched before the event, but it isn’t required.
