Call to Mind - Spotlight on Black Trauma and Policing

Call to Mind

Join us for this important virtual event Thursday June 4 at 6 p.m. and Friday June 5 at 9 p.m. on News 88.9 KNPR.

The death of George Floyd, a black man killed while being forcefully detained by a Minneapolis Police officer, has sparked peaceful demonstrations and destructive riots between protesters and police in the Twin Cities and across the country. Join MPR News host Angela Davis for a pre-recorded discussion with cultural trauma experts about the most recent high-profile incident to become an example of historic racial injustice. How does racial and cultural trauma affect black Americans and others? What are the needed supports and treatments to promote healing? How can a trauma-informed approach de-escalate interactions and help prevent future deadly incidents?

Angela will be joined by community leaders and cultural trauma experts including Resmaa Menakem, LICSW, cultural trauma expert and founder of Justice Leadership Solutions in Minneapolis, Justin Terrell, Executive Director of Minnesota Council for Minnesotans of African Heritage and Brittany Lewis, Founder and CEO of Research in Action.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
