Dinner and Lecture: Becoming Aggrieved: Care in Black Chicago

Centering on a low-income, African American community in Chicago, this lecture examines the coping mechanisms residents develop after one of their neighbors, Mrs. Lana, suffers what her doctors view as a psychotic break. The lecture argues that the story of Mrs. Lana’s “madness” is productive because it gives us valuable insight into the ways in which blacks, especially those living in low-income communities that face a dearth of institutional resources, invert popular expectations of mourning, thereby developing a concept of “becoming aggrieved” that does not merely lament death, but also affirms life.rn rnBIO: Laurence Ralph is Professor of Anthropology and African and African American Studies at Harvard University.
