The Divided City I: Understanding Trauma

February 5, 2021

StitchCast Studio Special Edition: The Divided City I 

Understanding Trauma

A conversation exploring trauma with Story Stitchers’ black youth led by Stitchers Youth Council co-chairs Branden Lewis and Emeara Burns with LJ Punch, MD, President, Power4STL and an American Critical Care Surgeon. 

Four unique conversations in the series will bring historical context around recurring topics chosen by youth in the StitchCast Studio published podcasts, including: the culture of trauma caused by poverty and repeated exposure to violence amongst families of color in St. Louis, stories of disorientation and dislocation of black families, and the power of story as healer in black cultures through time. 

This project is funded by The Divided City initiative. The Divided City is a joint project of the Center for the Humanities and the Sam Fox School, College of Architecture and Urban Design at Washington University in St. Louis. The Divided City is funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
