Amidst the painful reality of the pervasiveness and persistence of racial injustice in United States history and society, is it possible for deeper insights and new levels of empowerment to result from engaging with carefully selected poems as part of a professionally facilitated process? This workshop, designed and facilitated jointly by an African American Certified Applied Poetry Facilitator and a white Registered Poetry Therapist, both of whom have extensive experience building hope and resilience in contexts of social suffering, uses methods derived from biblio/poetry therapy to support people of all races and backgrounds in becoming more aware of difficult truths about the historical and ongoing trauma of racism and in discovering new wellsprings within ourselves and each other to move beyond despair. By the end of the workshop, participants will have become familiar with a variety of poems germane to the realities of race and, through a respectful process of reflection and sharing, will be in touch with wider possibilities for mutual recognition and freedom.
