Join us for our November Book Club, to keep our racial justice work alive.
Saturday November 23
Vegetarian potluck lunch noon to 12:30, book discussion from 12:30-1:30 pm.
For our fall book club, we’re keeping the discussion about racism and racial justice alive.
Our November book is My Grandmother’s Hands: Radicalized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending our Hearts and Bodies by Resmaa Menakem.
Called “the first self-discovery book to examine white body supremacy in America from the perspective of trauma and body-centered psychology, ” My Grandmother’s Hands is a thought-provoking exploration of race and racism in the United States.
Learn more about the book and author here.
After our powerful weekend workshop on Racism in the Yoga Community with Dr. Monea Abdul-Majeed, we will take what we’ve learned and experienced and use this book as a platform to continue to examine our biases and attitudes. At Lighthouse, we work against white supremacy and work to elevate those who are oppressed and disadvantaged. Join us for this discussion to advance this community conversation in DC’s yoga community.
Free and open to all.
