Archetypal Grief in African American Women
Saturday, February 18, 2017
This lecture/discussion will explore the psychological effects of child loss due to American slavery and institutionalized racism. The important significance of grief as intergeneration trauma is reviewed in terms of its direct connection to today’s racial violence against African American males. Our discussion will explore this circumstance through a Jungian lens, with deepening introspection into the archetype of slavery.
