My Grandmother's Hands: Racialized Trauma and the  Pathway to Mending our Hearts and Bodies

"In today’s America, we tend to think of healing as something binary: either we’re broken or we’re healed from that brokenness. But that’s not how healing operates, and it’s almost never how human growth works. More often, healing and growth take place on a continuum, with innumerable points between utter brokenness and total health." pg 12
