Description de l'événement
THE UNTOLD STORY: Intergenerational Trauma and Black Women

À propos de cet événement

Nigra Iuventa in collaboration with the Centre culturel Georges-Vanier invites you to conversation as part of the exhibition I know Why the Caged Bird Sings.

This conversation will explore both Gloria Swain’s thesis, THE UNTOLD STORY: Intergenerational Trauma and Black Women and Dr. Lashley’s decades of work in psychiatry and mental wellness. In her work Ms. Swain employs family narratives, art making, analysis of secondary resources and community building to address the impact of intergenerational trauma on Black women’s mental health.

Gloria Swain is an activist and multidisciplinary artist whose work focuses on Black women and mental health. Using lived experiences and art to explore intergenerational trauma, her work is an opportunity to open conversation and bring awareness about mental illness in the Black community and to remove the stigma. Gloria Swain is one of the artists in the exhibition I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.

Dr. Myrna Lashley is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry, McGill University as well as an adjunct researcher at the Culture and Mental Health Research Unit of the Lady Davis Institute for Medical Research. Her current research interests are in cultural aspects of youth mental health, and cultural aspects of radicalization leading to violence.

This discussion will be moderated in English & French by Benny Etienne, the Black Canada lead ( Airbnb).
