Rest Is Resistance by Tricia Hersey

Made By: Liitle, Brown Spark

From the founder and creator of The Nap Ministry, Rest Is Resistance is a battle cry, a guidebook, a map for a movement, and a field guide for the weary and hopeful. 

This book is rooted in spiritual energy and centered in Black liberation, womanism, somatics, and Afrofuturism. With captivating storytelling and practical advice, all delivered in Hersey’s lyrical voice and informed by her deep experience in theology, activism, and performance art, Rest Is Resistance is a call to action and manifesto for those who are sleep deprived, searching for justice, and longing to be liberated from the oppressive grip of Grind Culture.

Founded by artist and theologian Tricia Hersey in 2016, The Nap Ministry evolved from Transfiguration, a performance where the artist explored reparations, resistance, Black Liberation Theology, and the spiritual practice of rest, and how it can be used as a direct line to our ancestors. 

For Transfiguration, Hersey combined her knowledge of theology, poetry, performance, archives, and community organizing, inevitably giving form to the frameworks, manifesto, tenets, and rest practices that would define The Nap Ministry.
