cw: language, racism
When Dr. Rita Nakashima Brock was riding the school bus in first grade, a girl stabbed her in the back of her head with a pencil and said, “Don’t you ever do that again to me, you dirty Jap.” From that dramatic introduction to the United States, Dr. Brock settled into her childhood on a military base in Kansas, before eventually making her way into college and graduate school in California.
Dr. Brock’s work on moral injury couldn’t be more relevant in the time of a pandemic. Her vivid stories of her childhood, activism, worship, and scholarship are just the thing for curling up and listening. Thank you Liz for your great questions, Dr. Brock for sharing your time with us, and thank you everyone for listening!

“No human being can find their way to a new moral identity alone. We become moral people through the love and guidance of our families, and communities from the moment we are born.” – Dr. Rita Brock
