Some of you may remember that before Black Panther consumed my life, I was doing research on the concept of continuing trauma.
Science has shown us that trauma changes the genetic makeup of people. Let’s apply this to the UUA and its antecedents.
We have a moderately documented history of causing trauma to those people of color who have the audacity to strive for leadership at any level. This trauma is generational and continuing.
So…if trauma changes the genetic makeup of people, how does trauma change the UUA?
And how does the change differ if the previous traumas go unacknowledged?
