Erica Ford & Kheperah KearseAt the @BET House Party Real Talk with Erica Ford


During this conversation, Erica Ford asked me, "How Do You Heal in the Midst of Trauma?" Typically, the process of healing from trauma begins after the situation has passed. However, research shows that most Black African American descendants of slaves have experienced a lifetime of trauma due to what Dr. Joy DeGruy has identified as post-traumatic slave syndrome and ongoing systemic racism, with 1 in 3 suffering from some form of PTSD due to cumulative stress.Ironically, while we work on healing from generational traumas of the past, we are simultaneously at risk of being re-traumatized by the extreme acts of violence we are constantly witnessing and experiencing on a daily basis, whether on social media, on the news or in the streets..This constant state of mental and emotional stress keeps the blood and body acidic, causing many of the pre-existing conditions which led to the highest rates of Coronavirus-related deaths in the Black community.Now more than ever, it is imperative to exercise daily practices to prevent cumulative stress and continue to break deeper generational cycles of trauma at the cellular level, so that we can restore and sustain mental/emotional wellbeing.

Well, this is it. The last one. At least for a while. Hopefully, I'm back in the fall, giving you guys all the juiciest under the radar entertainment out there. But, for now, alas, this is the end. I'm doing something special today. I'm giving the usual TV show, movie, video game, and album, but this time, it's not under the radar, or new. It's my favorite things. Things where if people I love haven't seen them, I slap them across the face and make them watch. But, enough sappy stuff, let's get into it!
