Seed to Seeds: Systemic Oppression and PTSD
by Dr. LaShonda M. Jackson-Dean
Systemic Oppression is a major contributor to stress in the Black race. Black men and Black women suffered from slavery and the aftermath to include white privilege. Although slavery as we historically know it has been abolished, the re-engineered version of it is alive and continues to negatively affect the efforts of amassing success within the Black race.
