The Slave Trade, the Colonization of North American Indigenous People and the Holocaust are some of most horrific human rights violations in world history that have left behind a legacy of trauma and… pain. Cultural communities, severely impacted by these events, are now faced with the challenge of trying to heal while trying to nurture and protect future generations.
On May 5th, 2013, BONDFIRES will publish a three-part series of posts on Cultural Healing.
Part 1 – RESILIENCE, will feature an interview with Tommy Miller, a prominent leader in the black community of Ithaca, NY, who will examine Post-Traumatic Slavery Syndrome and share his perspective on the impact of the slave trade on African-American people and the process of healing.
At BONDFIRES, our hope is that you will continue to participate in the de-construction and eradication of racism in North American society (and the world) by raising awareness to the issues of race and racism, by providing information about racism that will encourage people to examine their own beliefs/ actions and make informed choices not to participate in racist acts, racist speech/remarks , or be involved in systems that maintain racism in our society and…the world. We welcome your feedback and encourage you to follow our blog, post a comment, share information and engage in dialogue about the information we present.
Thank you for visiting BONDFIRES!
