Juneteenth Commemoration: Healing the Historical Trauma of Slavery through Genealogical Research In-Person
Has your genealogical research forced you to confront the racial wounds of the past - from slavery to the many forms of racism it engendered? Facing "historical trauma" is as necessary for African Americans researching their ancestors who were enslaved as it is for White people who discover their ancestors were enslavers.
To commemorate Juneteenth, join us for a workshop with Sharon Leslie Morgan, renowned genealogist and founder of Our Black Ancestry, as we learn about historical trauma and how it affects people today.
Morgan will introduce the STAR (Strategies for Trauma Awareness and Resilience) model for healing historical trauma and show how genealogical research can help heal the trauma of slavery.
Registration is required. A Zoom link will be sent to registrants 1 hour before the program starts.
