Why Didn't I Know That?
Most of you have not only watched Frances Causey's The Long Shadow
but have encouraged others to watch it. However, did you know that she has a list of other documentaries? Causey's 2018 documentary, Is Your Story Making You Sick?,
highlights trauma in varied forms and the courageous steps some are taking to address it in their personal lives. Although not focused on racial trauma, it is mentioned. In considering today's national conversations around generational trauma, racism (internalized racial oppression/superiority), and re-allocating some funding toward mental health emergency response in policing strategies; this documentary is definitely worth watching.
