Call in to speak with the host
Organization: Women of Color National Network (WOCN)
Join hosts Alice Lynch and Sumayya Coleman and show commentator Tonya Lovelace as they discuss the ways that historical trauma exacerbates intimate partner violence against African American women. With the legacy of slavery and such public and private violence as rape, forced pregnancy, brutal beatings and daily monitoring and controlling, trauma has been built into the collective and biological memory for descendants of slavery generations later. This discussion will examine how these tactics are replicated in many current relationships and ways to identify and address past and current trauma.
It's good to talk.
