Next week, Davia Roberts and I will be leading an amazing workshop at SXSW that’s specifically for Black activists.
The REBEL + REST (R+R) Protecting Our Peace Workshop will offer psychological, sociological and cultural framework on the impact of racism, systemic oppression and the trauma of online brutality on mental wellness, particularly for Black activists. This workshop will reframe how we understand the ways that systemic racism affects our daily lives, the pitfalls of social media as a trigger and provide tools and resources that inspire holistic health and restoration. Participants will be invited to take part in active exercises that help us both individually and communally learn to resist, while protecting our peace.
