“A robust group of 14 met Liberty Books – Grabouw Mall. The Dialogue topic was racism and inequality but we ended up exploring race as a form of baggage. The group become aware that we were holding many generations of legacy (racial and otherwise) and that all of us were traumatized in varying degrees but that numbing ourselves to our feelings about racism was sustaining the effects of racism. We allowed ourselves to truly feel some of the hurts of racism. Our actions included cultivating self-love, looking at what we are carrying and asking if it is really ours and resisting stereotypical perceptions.” NNI Agent Sacha
