HEALING AT THE ROOTS by alexandra "ahlay" blakely
GRIEVING WHITE SUPREMACY
<> hole <> whole <> holy <>
Grieving White Supremacy is for people of European descent who are aching for a space to grieve both the weapon and the wound of white supremacy.
As white people, we are both responsible to dismantle the systems that uphold white supremacist policies, laws and institutions and we are worthy of our own ancestral healing. In fact, the two are not separate. This work is holy.
THE WEAPON & THE WOUND
"White bodies traumatized each other in Europe for centuries before they encountered Black and Red bodies. This carnage and trauma profoundly affected white bodies and the expressions of their DNA. As we'll see, this historical trauma is closely linked to the development of white-body supremacy in America."

Instead of moving towards the wound, how do we move towards the longing?
We will grieve collectively, explore where internalized white supremacy lives in our bodies, how we (and our ancestors) have perpetuated (intentionally and/or unintentionally) these harms and grieve our own ancestral losses resulting in a range of sorrows from spiritual starvation to unbelonging.
