Publisher Description

The New York Times bestselling author of MY GRANDMOTHER'S HANDS surveys America's deteriorating democracy and offers embodied practices to help us protect ourselves and our country.
In THE QUAKING OF AMERICA, therapist and trauma specialist Resmaa Menakem takes readers through somatic processes addressing the growing threat of white-supremacist political violence.
Through the coordinated repetition of lies, anti-democratic elements in American society are working to incite mass radicalization, widespread chaos, and a collective trauma response in tens of millions of American bodies. Currently, most of us are utterly unprepared for this potential mayhem. This book can help prepare us—and possibly prevent further destruction. This preparation focuses not on strategy or politics, but on practices that can help us
Build presence and discernment in our bodies
Settle our bodies during the heat of conflict
Maintain our safety, sanity, and stability in dangerous situations
Heal our personal and collective racialized trauma
Practice embodied social action
Turn toward instead of on one another
THE QUAKING OF AMERICA is a unique and perfectly timed guide to help us navigate our widespread upheaval and build an antiracist culture.
"Resmaa Menakem is one of our country's most gifted racial healers. His brilliant new book could not be more timely."—Michael Eric Dyson, author of Entertaining Race and Long Time Coming
"Resmaa Menakem is a visionary, and his work is absolutely essential for antiracist practice.”—Robin DiAngelo, PhD, New York Times bestselling author of White Fragility and Nice Racism
