Rx #10: Inside the Black Psyche
Hey everyone, I am back after a needed break. Since I am reading through James Baldwin’s work in preparation for a possible reading and discussion series I am leading, I wanted to share this conversation, “James Baldwin: Race, Media and Psychoanalysis,” about his cultural criticism work and psychoanalysis, featuring Annie Lee Jones, Ph.D., a psychoanalyst, clinical psychologist and co-chair of NYU’s Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis who actually lives in my community of Southeast Queens, Aisha Karefa-Smart, author, educator, public speaker and niece of James Baldwin and Victor P. Bonfilio, JD, Ph.D., a psychoanalyst from the Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California. This is my first introduction to Annie Lee Jones’ work, but I look forward to reading more about it. Below this video is another video, Black Psychoanalysts Speak, featuring Jones.
Also, I will have a series of posts exploring Beronda L. Montgomery’s book, Lessons from Plants, on my Patreon, so please do consider become a patron on the $5 level!
