Community-Centered Approaches to Advance African American Consciousness and Healing Related to Racialized Trauma
This report is a follow-up to a 2018 study completed by A. Richmond and R.D. Peoples to determine what barriers related to healing from race-related trauma were reported by African American participants in Minnesota. That study, commissioned by the African American Leadership Forum (AALF), found that very few participants were aware of the trauma resources available in the community (2018 report summary in Appendix). This follow-up report presents the results of one-on-one interviews with 9 racial trauma experts intended to gather information that can be used to help advance community- centered treatment of and healing from racial trauma in the Twin Cities.
