“The Body Does Not Lie: Using the Body’s Own Knowledge (Truth-telling) to Understand the Impacts of Racial Oppression and to Chart A Pathway Toward Racial Liberation” – Dr. Heather Hackman

November 15, 2013 @ 1:15 pm - 4:30 pm


This workshop is born out of my racial justice work in two main areas: first, trauma and the truth the body teaches us about the impacts of race, racism and whiteness in our lives; and second, the “liberatory biology of the human cell” and how its characteristics, if utilized in our daily lives, create spaces where racism and whiteness simply cannot survive. Both strands of knowledge center around the notion that “the body does not lie”, and just as the body indicates the ways racism and whiteness are held as trauma, it also very clearly indicates the pathway out of this mess. As such, this workshop helps participants understand the racial justice truth-telling of the body and provides tools for them to regularly address both the trauma of racial oppression and the liberation of the human cell in their daily work. Because of the advanced nature of this workshop’s content, it is not for those who are new to race, racism and whiteness content and instead is best suited for those who already have a solid foundation in this and are ready to be pushed. Participants are expected to engage fully, attend BOTH portions of the workshop.
