Tyler D. Parry (Interdisciplinary, Gender, and Ethnic Studies) has written an article, "What PTSD Tells us about the History of Slavery," was published in the Washington Post this week. It examines how enslaved people spoke about trauma, and how slavery's debilitating brutalities induced symptoms now known as PTSD. Simultaneously, it makes a broader call for all Americans to understand how anti-Black racism impacts the mental health of Black Americans following the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers.
