Can the presence of our ancestors both speak as well as act
to help us come to grips with our collective histories of racial,
ethnic, gender identities and biases?


Using the healing processes in poetry, literature, visual arts and
psychoanalysis, the presenters will consider how phantomatic and
ancestral forces act in us through “cultural complexes” and “phantom
narratives.” We will contemplate the ways we come to grips with our
collective histories of racial, ethnic, gender identities and biases
through reparation, implication, forgiveness and clinical work.
The contemporary written word from African Americans about
the spectral presences who act as our guides from our world to
in-between worlds, landing on mythical shores where history can
be revealed, witnessed, and cleansed in our souls will be used to
amplify the need for such presences. Clinical examples of this
process will be included.
