Dedoceo Habi shares how he learned that the best way to make sure you sustain your trauma-related behavior is to run away from it, to act like it doesn’t exist.
I was born on July 11, 1954. My brother Charles was born on July 17. We’re cancers. We’re tough. He’s older than I am. He’s an Irish twin. We’re the same age for six days. I was born in a Kansas City hospital – County Hospital Number Two – a segregated hospital. Hospital Number One was for white people. Hospital Two was for Black people. Kansas was a border state. They didn’t have slaves, but they didn’t like Black people.

Black heroes, it seems, do not exist.
