‘The Trend With Justin A Williams’ Podcast. Episode 218: No Apologies for Justice With Author and Activist Resmaa Menakem

Author Resmaa Menakem (L) and host Justin A Williams (R) dig deep on the next episode of “The Trend With Justin A Williams”

Resmaa Menakem is an esteemed scholar, author and psychotherapist whose Somatic Abolitionism is “a living embodied Anti-Racism practice and culture building that requires endurance, agility, resource cultivation, stamina, discernment, self and communal discipline cultivation, embodied racial literacy and humility.”

We sit down to discuss January 6th, and we argue over the proper application of compassion for those who perpetrate violence, hate, and bigotry as seen on that day and much more, including “the culture”!
