Grieving While Black: An Antiracist Take on Oppression and Sorrow

by Breeshia Wade Author

A transcendent book that takes our understanding of emotions and power to a new level. Grief is something that goes beyond our personal experience of loss, says Breeshia Walsh. Drawing on her experience as a Zen chaplain, hospice caregiver, and Black woman, she connects sorrow to the ongoing trauma that is part of systemic oppression. She shows how the grief of non-Black people can perpetrate white supremacy unless we are able to attend to it wisely. This is a book about how to grieve, and the stakes of doing so well.
