The Little Book of Racial Healing: A Virtual Book Launch

The Zehr Institute for Restorative Justice at Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) will host its first webinar of the year:

January 23, 2019
4:30PM to 6:00PM*


Authors Jodie Geddes and Thomas Norman DeWolf will host the “virtual” launch of their new book. The Little Book of Racial Healing is the latest in the Little Books series published by Good Books. Join the authors for an engaging conversation on the content of the book, Coming to the Table, and the high interest across the United States in truth-telling, liberation and transformation. 

Jodie Geddes is a community organizer, writer, and restorative justice healer who seeks to be a home where young people and elders can learn together and create collective community responses to the transformative healing of historical harms built in the legacy and history of slavery. Through her work with Restorative Justice for Oakland Youth (RJOY) Jodie is exploring the possibility of a national truth and reconciliation process for the United States. Jodie is the president of the Board of Managers for Coming to the Table (CTTT).

Tom DeWolf serves as Executive Director of CTTT and is a certified STAR Practitioner (Strategies for Trauma Awareness & Resilience). Tom is the author of two books: Inheriting the Trade, and Gather at the Table: The Healing Journey of a Daughter of Slavery and a Son of the Slave Trade (both Beacon Press). With restorative justice and trauma awareness principles at its foundation, Coming to the Table has grown from a gathering of two dozen people at EMU in 2006 to thousands of members across the United States today, including 32 Local Affiliate Groups meeting in communities in 12 different states.
