Holding Space: A Conversation on Collective Trauma Amid Viral Racist Violence

As visual images of brutal acts of racist violence inflicted upon Black, Latinx, and Asian Americans continue to goviral on social media, mainstream media, and through other screens in our daily lives, and as the public discourseon these traumatizing images persists, how do we adopt new methods of critical resistance and newfoundational practices of resilience? How do we respond when we must constantly witness racist violence?

In this conversation, CCRS Fellows Dr. Stacie Craft DeFreitas and Dr. Felicia Harris will draw from their fields ofresearch and their own personal experiences to explore ways to hope, cope, and hold space for one another inour new — and often discouraging — normal. Audience members will have the opportunity to pose questions inthe chat that our interlocutors will be ready to answer.
