​ABOUT THIS BOOK:
Since taking office, Donald J. Trump’s most volatile damage has been invigorating white supremacy. The KKK has come out the woodworks to play, front and center. Racism is no longer America’s dirty little secret hiding in the shadows. Racism is taking the main stage, sitting at the head of America’s dinner table....This vital resource guide is unique because it incorporates the basic understandings of spiritual care with the current social, emotional, existential and spiritual needs of African Americans simply surviving in Trump’s violent America. It’s one-of-a-kind because it offers specific spiritual care strategies and interventions for African Americans dealing with particular physical, social and emotional health challenges in the midst of rising statistics of racism, sexism, classism and homophobia leading to violence in the United States.
 
Intended for anyone in academia and/or the helping professions, this comprehensive work is beneficial for those who seek to provide spiritual care to African American hospital patients, counselling clients, church congregants and parishioners, military veterans, and/or returning citizens. The contributors to this anthology are experts in their respective fields who offer a new, refreshing and energizing perspective on important issues impacting African Americans.

​ABOUT THIS BOOK:
The moment the pager rings, all hell breaks loose. Across the pager appears the words, "Code Yellow ER: Gun Shot Wound." A chaplain at a Level I trauma center can dread these words. These words mean it's gonna' be a long night. These words mean somebody is probably fighting for their life right now. How does a hospital chaplain provide pastoral care to gang member patients? What are the systemic factors that contribute to gang violence? How does the American culture contribute to gang violence? What is the church called to be and do? Where is the hope? These are just some of the questions that this fast-paced, energetic book tackles, ultimately leaving one to theologically grapple with the question: Is There A Heaven For A 'G' (or Gangster)? Buckle up and get ready for this adrenaline ride. One thing is for certain, after engaging this book, readers won't view gang violence in the same way ever again.

Transforming Trauma into Trust:
A Prophetic Model of CPE Supervision in the Age of #Black Lives Matter
By Danielle J. Buhuro

ABSTRACT:

#BlackLivesMatter is a recently developed social and political movement that is mainly identified as a medium for bringing attention to the murder of unarmed black people by police and vigilantes. However, the movement seeks to highlight how black people are left “powerless” and “deprived of our basic human rights and dignity.”1 The #BlackLivesMatter movement speaks to how African Americans currently live in a climate of “state violence”.
