Webinar Description

Professor Alvin Poussaint described the cumulative impact of microaggressions as “death by a thousand nicks”. What might seem small and insignificant can become ingrained into the very fiber of one’s being, causing the body to live in a constant state of alert.

This workshop will utilize the conventional and expanded Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) studies to discuss how racial trauma impacts the physical, social, and psychological health of individuals and communities. Participants will recognize systemic oppressions, confront implicit bias and engage in dialogue around racial healing, empowerment and equity. 


Crystal Rozelle – Bennett is an educator, an advocate, a survivor and a self-proclaimed thriver! For the past 25 years she has been driven by her personal experiences of trauma to elevate and amplify the voices of individuals and communities in order to promote healing and opportunities to move from surviving to thriving.
