Black/African American Racial Awareness and Sensitivity Support Group
This group allows African American/Black people to authentically and freely “let their hair down” and talk as if one was at home with their family without judgment. Truly decenter the privileged and without the compulsion or need to take care of white or other people. Create a space to talk and process the most recent traumas. Understand the micro and macro aggression, which are endured by African American and Black people, on a daily basis due to Whiteness, White Superiority, and White Supremacy.
The Co-facilitators will create and manage a safe place, to assist with regulating one’s rage and anger, validating one’s experience with racism, practicing exhaling, encouraging the need to breathe, and unlocking learned voicelessness due to 500 years of subjugation/oppression/white supremacy.
The Breathing Room
An affinity group for African American/Black people who are enduring the centrality of whiteness and learning how to survive the deconstruction of white supremacy.
