About Crooked Room: Stories from New Orleans
In 2012, as part of the IWES’ community based human recovery efforts, Wisdom Circles were conducted with fifty five African-American women of varying age and backgrounds. The circles explored how stereotypes, shame, and racism shape their current sense of self-efficacy and agency. These poignant, beautiful and difficult discussions were analyzed and compiled to create the Crooked Room: Stories from New Orleans book.
