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

  • 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.
