In the instant New York Times bestseller Rest is Resistance: A Manifesto, Tricia Hersey, aka The Nap Bishop, shows us how to connect to the liberating power of rest, daydreaming, and naps as a foundation for healing and justice.
What would it be like to live in a well-rested world? Far too many of us have claimed productivity as the cornerstone of success. Brainwashed by capitalism, we subject our bodies and minds to work at an unrealistic and damaging pace––feeding into the same engine that enslaved millions of Black people into brutal labor for its own relentless benefit. But our worth does not reside in how much we produce. Drawing on Black liberation, womanism, somatics, and Afrofuturism, Hersey offers a call to action, a battle cry, a field guide, and a manifesto for all of us who are sleep deprived, seeking justice, and longing to be liberated from what Hersey calls Grind Culture. In conversation with The Nap Bishop will be Cultural Theologian, interdisciplinary curator, and lead steward at Artist As First Responder: Ashara Ekundayo, whose commitment to recognizing joy in the midst of struggle is central to her own practice.
