BLACK GRIEF MATTERS: an Emotional Justice reckoning & reimagining
with Esther Armah, Executive Director, The Armah Institute of Emotional Justice
"BLACK GRIEF MATTERS: an Emotional Justice reckoning & reimagining" invites us to reckon with existing grief definitions, and expand them to engage the lived experience of global Black women rooted in histories of loss beyond the physical but connected with the state’s approach and treatment of black bodies, 2020’s converging pandemics and a history of a generational inheritance of loss from our legacies of enslavement and colonialism. What does it mean to see loss through the lens of global Black women, to center our emotionality and interiority? What does it mean to connect to honor the ceremony, community and comfort of global Black traditions around mourning, and from that loss and legacy create joy that centers our well-being? What happens when loss includes loss of empathy, of safety, of humanity – when there is an empathy exodus towards your black woman body? What can we create from that expanded knowing that heals?
