We Got Soul; We Can Heal encourages us to explore the ways in which integrating soul with contemplative practices can foster healing and restoration on both individual and collective levels. The text calls on us to expand our understanding of leadership and community interaction and impact. With years of experience in higher education and as an elder, mentor, and teacher living in Senegal, Jeffers-Coly surveys race-based stress and trauma, community-building, the importance of ancestry, and the elder-mentor role.
