This book by Dr. Joy DeGruy, examines how emancipation was followed by one hundred more years of institutionalized subjugation through Black Codes and Jim Crow laws, convict leasing, and lynching. What do repeated traumas, endured generation after generation by a people produce? What impact have these ordeals had on African Americans today? In the pages of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome, Dr. DeGruy tries to answer these questions.
