Publisher's Summary

"People of color have endured traumatic histories and almost daily assaults on our dignity. We have prayed about racism, been in denial, or acted out in anger, but we have not known how to individually or collectively pursue healing from the racial trauma." 

As a child, Sheila Wise Rowe was bused across town to a majority white school, and she experienced the racist lie that one group is superior to all others. We experience ongoing racial trauma as this lie is perpetuated by the action or inaction of the government, media, viral videos, churches, and within families of origin. In contrast, scripture declares that we are all fearfully and wonderfully made. 

Professional counselor Rowe exposes the symptoms of racial trauma to lead listeners to a place of freedom from the past and new life for the future. In each chapter, she includes an interview with a person of color to explore how we experience and resolve racial trauma. With Rowe as a reliable guide who has both been on the journey and shown others the way forward, you will find a safe pathway to resilience.

Awfull!!!!

I am a counselor in social work, and as a social worker I work with people of color with current trauma based on historical trauma. What I got was maybe two chapters on trauma, and eight chapters on the Bible, chapter and verse. If I wanted a book on scripture, I would've bought one. I painfully finished the the book only because I paid for it. With all due respect I didn't buy the book to hear what Jesus said or what God said to Moses. Rather, I wanted to learn more about historical racial trauma and its effects on today's people of color. I found it an incredible waste of time.

Healing Indeed!

Thankful for this work! Highly recommend for BIPOC followers of Jesus, it was a healing balm to listen to so many stories as well as to be encouraged through the prayer and journal prompts. Also, recommend for our White brothers and sisters to gain a better understanding of what they're brothers and sisters of color endure, have endured.

A book that teaches, inspires, and indeed, heals

Sheila Wise Rowe has written a beautiful, insightful book that helps people of color identify racial trauma through true and relatable stories of others. It also provides opportunities for reflection and application all grounded in scripture. Well-worth the read.

So Blessed By This!

I purchased the ebook several months ago but soon learned that my learning style and stamina have changed. I will be attending a workshop this evening which required that I complete the book prior to starting the class.

I was concerned but thought, "Let me try the audio book." I am so thankful that I did! This is my first experience in audio books. I am glad that this was the book I chose and I am excited to continue to learn this way.

The words are more powerful coming directly from the author and I was able to finish the book and highlight in my ebook as I went along.

This was such a blessing and has opened up a new study skill for me.

Thank you for such incredible content with such vulnerability and excellent parallels with the word.

Don't listen to the bad review.

That person must have missed the Christian Audio running along the side of the book cover. If you want a real, passionate, and insightful look at the trauma of racism, this is your book. If you don't want a christian perspective, pick another.

Needed for Parents!!

As a father, that has suffered Trauma from racism, this book helped to heal me. I still have work to do but this book was a good start. I often try to find salvation in women or bravery or ignorance but salvation is in recovery that God has built me to belong to him. I also belong to my community and I’m responsible for knowing myself while serving others.
