My Grandparents’ Trauma is In My Blood – Tonic

The trauma experience by Holocaust and Japanese Internment camps victims has been documented to be passed on to the next generation. This was found to be the same with trauma victims and their families from other events/conflicts/wars. So my question then becomes how to document that blacks in the Americas are still experiencing the trauma of the middle-passage, slavery, reconstruction, Jim Crow laws, separation of family unit, lost of cultural identity, mass prison incarceration, urban ghettos, etc..
