I describe in this book how the Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome has historically and currently affected my own family, and subsequently many other Black families. The book suggests that pre-slavery, Middle Passage, post-slavery, and modern-day conditions contributed to the Black family's pathologies. It goes on to demonstrate the manifestation of some of these specific problems in my family that has been caused by these historical conditions. It shows how the past continues to write on the slate of today. It also implies that the Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome will continue to affect the Black family in the distant future.
