An Informal Community Chat with author Terrie M. Williams

Thursday, February 28, 2013
In Black Pain, Terrie has inspired the famous and the ordinary to speak out and mental health professionals to offer solutions. The book is a mirror turned on you. Do you see yourself and your loved ones here? Do the descriptions of how the pain looks, feels, and sounds seem far too familiar? Now you can do something about it.

Black Pain identifies emotional pain -- which uniquely and profoundly affects the Black experience - as the root of lashing out through desperate acts of crime, violence, drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders, workalholism, and addiction to shopping, gambling, and sex. Few realize these destructive acts are symptoms of our inner sorrow.

Black people are dying. Everywhere we turn, in the faces we see and the headlines we read, we feel in our gut that something is wrong, but we don't know what it is. It's time to recognize it and work through our trauma.
