✏Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome Book Summary : In the 16th century, the beginning of African enslavement in the Americas until the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment and emancipation in 1865, Africans were hunted like animals, captured, sold, tortured, and raped. They experienced the worst kind of physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual abuse. Given such history, isn't it likely that many of the enslaved were severely traumatized? And did the trauma and the effects of such horrific abuse end with the abolition of slavery? Emancipation was followed by one hundred more years of institutionalized subjugation through the enactment of Black Codes and Jim Crow laws, peonage, convict leasing, domestic terrorism and lynching. Today the violations continue, and when combined with the crimes of the past, they result in yet unmeasured injury. What do repeated traumas, endured generation after generation by a people produce? What impact have these ordeals had on African Americans today? Dr. Joy DeGruy, answers these questions and more. With over thirty years of practical experience as a professional in the mental health field, Dr. DeGruy encourages African Americans to view their attitudes, assumptions, and behaviors through the lens of history and so gain a greater understanding of how centuries of slavery and oppression have impacted people of African descent in America. Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome helps to lay the necessary foundation to ensure the well-being and sustained health of future generations and provides a rare glimpse into the evolution of society's beliefs, feelings, attitudes and behavior concerning race in America.

✏Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome Book Summary : One group that has received little attention in the psychological literature, with regards to issues of race as related to the practice of psychology, is the military. The military is a unique cultural entity that most people think provides soldiers of African descent with the system and resources they need to serve in the U.S. military. Author, Janetra Johnson, had chronological over a decade of National Guard history, in which she discovered the National Guard erroneously maintained a deregulated EEO and AEP program.Janetra is a military veteran and she fought the Guard over its deregulated pay policy during the California National Guards largest financial crisis. The California National Guard's recruiting bonus controversy was the largest known financial calamity and it had received little attention.Inside the book, Janetra walks her readers through the process of how she dealt with those financial thoughts of slavery and the Jim Crow era. The book is written from the perspective of a veteran of African descent, who had experienced Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (PTSS) while serving in the California Air National Guard and has managed to experience a great reduction of these symptoms over the years. The book tells the story of how she found out about PTSS.What is Post Traumatic Slave Disorder?According to Wikipedia, Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America's Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing (PTSS) is a 2005 book resulting from years of historical and psychological research by Dr. Joy DeGruy (née Leary), Ph.D. PTSS describes a set of behaviors, beliefs and actions associated with or, related to multi-generational trauma experienced by African Americans that include but are not limited to undiagnosed and untreated Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in enslaved Africans and their descendants. PTSS posits that centuries of slavery in the United States, followed by systemic and structural racism and oppression, including lynching, Jim Crow laws, and unwarranted mass incarceration, have resulted in multigenerational maladaptive behaviors, which originated as survival strategies."ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Janetra Johnson studied the African American culture during slavery and the Jim Crow era. She also studied women rights. She earned a Bachelors in Philosophy, Pre-law, and a Masters degree in Business Administration. She had written a series of books about her experiences in the California National Guard. These books were written from the perspective of an African American veteran.

✏Statement of Regret Book Summary : Kwaku Mackenzie, founder of a Black policy think tank, hits the bottle after his father's death. As media interest in the once dynamic Institute fades, his team grows fractious and then, disastrously, he favours a young Oxford scholar over his own devastated son. When, in a vain attempt to regain influence, he publicly champions division within the Black community, the consequences are shattering. Kwame Kwei-Armah's third play for the National Theatre opens in November 2007 and takes a punchy, provocative look at the Black British experience and the need, or not, for solidarity.

✏Cultural Trauma Book Summary : In this book, Ron Eyerman explores the formation of the African-American identity through the theory of cultural trauma. The trauma in question is slavery, not as an institution or as personal experience, but as collective memory: a pervasive remembrance that grounded a people's sense of itself. Combining a broad narrative sweep with more detailed studies of important events and individuals, Eyerman reaches from Emancipation through the Harlem Renaissance, the Depression, the New Deal and the Second World War to the Civil Rights movement and beyond. He offers insights into the intellectual and generational conflicts of identity-formation which have a truly universal significance, as well as providing a compelling account of the birth of African-American identity. Anyone interested in questions of assimilation, multiculturalism and postcolonialism will find this book indispensable.

✏From Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome to Self Determination and Greatness Book Summary : The purpose of Volume II of "From Post-Traumatic Slave Syndrome to Self-Determination and Greatness" is to describe how and when this intergenerational trauma was established after tens of thousands of Black African global hegemonies. The trauma began when the foundations of modern civilization were stolen numerous Aryan invaders, including Indo-European Arabs that now inhabit the Northeast African Sub-Continent (today's Middle East) and Kemet (today's Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, and Somali). The current result of these invasions is ideology of white supremacy and racism that denies Africans in Diaspora and on the continent their quest for self-determination, knowledge of their past greatness, and intergenerational trauma that has altered the mindset of the unaware. This volume starts by describing how Africa ruled the Ancient World on all seven continents. Africa is cited as the root of all modern religion, particularly Christianity. Images of artifacts, paintings, and icons of a Black Madonna and Christ held in Europe's and Russia's cathedrals are depicted. These artistic renditions were created more than 1,000 years ago, closest to the death of Jesus Christ and construction of the New Testament, before racially transformed versions were remade within the last 500 years. This and other evidence suggest that Jesus and his twelve disciples were black like today's African-Americans and Africans residing in Sub-Saharan Africa. DNA evidence supporting this suggestion is explained. The argument that the people depicted in the Christian bible, its prophets, and Ancient Hebrews were Black Africans indistinguishable from today's African-Americans and Sub-Saharan cousins. Evidence to this argument is cited and presented from biblical scriptures. The book moves through time from the Ancient World to the Middle Ages prior to onset of African slavery where inbreed Africans were seeders and saviors of civilization in Europe derived from Ancient Africa. These inbreed Africans who resulted from 700 years of intermarriage with Aryan inhabitants and occupation by Black Moorish Overlords became Europe's royalty, nobility, ad leading churchmen. Their rule was challenged by the Reformation by populist Europeans who wanted to nationalize Christianity and break that connection between church and state by inbreed blacks. As part of the racial transformation of history, the Reformation is portrayed as a purely religious movement rather than a race war that would justify African slavery, colonization, and imperialism. Evidence is presented that the inbreed African royalty held on to their rule to the mid-19th century. The book describes how breaking the hold of the African hegemony led to the generation of wealth extracted from six of seven continents into Western Europe through human exploitation (thief, slavery, genocide, and post-traumatic slave syndrome).

✏From Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome to Self Determination and Greatness Book Summary : The purpose of this book is to explain how the intergenerational trauma derived from slavery segregation, and insidious racial animus has impacted on today's African Americans. The psychological abnormalities or deviances are examined from their root causes. Masking of the resulting conditions are perused for their socioeconomic implications. Independent reasoning and the appropriate setting for its development are suggested. In addition, awareness of the greatness of our ancient legacy is presented to break the psychological chains causing Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (PTSS). The book describes how PTSS leads to abnormal bouts with rage and abusive behavior, mostly against other blacks. Awareness of the trauma often leads to denial through greater reliance on defensive behavior that departs from reality. PTSS is triggered both internally and through DNA memory and externally by the racially hostile society that we live in. Research on this subject by Dr. Joy De Gray is reviewed and analyzed. An unexamined PTSS in denial is traced to mental slavery that causes dependency and identification with victimizers. This mental slavery is based on fear and inferiority complex that produces distorted views of self. Liberation and enslavement become indistinguishable. Individuals become psychologically self-destructive, a burden to themselves, loved ones, and society. Options to find "the better angels" of our true history to break PTSS's cycle and resulting impact are presented.
