September 30, 2022 — Grieving While Black

[27 pages]

Grieving While Black is the title of Breeshia Wade’s anti racist exposition on oppression and sorrow in the black community. She widens the notion of grief from something that has happened to us to something we fear, what we love, and what we aspire to. She connects sorrow to the ongoing trauma of systemic oppression.

Another article we want to call your attention to is Lynne Layton’s (2020) “Transgenerational hauntings: Toward a social psychoanalysis and an ethic of dis-illusionment.” In Toward a Social Psychoanalysis: Culture, character, and normative unconscious processes. New York, Routledge, pp. 255-298.  In order to be she asks us to look at the history of whites having and doing, the raced and class ethic which haunts America and psychoanalysis.

Keeping Wade and Layton’s calls in mind, we are going to read a short story of James Baldwin, “Sonny’s Blues” (1957)

Baldwin, J. (1957). “Sonny’s Blues”, Originally published in The Partisan Review. Collected in Going to Meet the Man, New York: Vintage Books, 122-148.
