Racism is traumatic. Racial categorization has led to the devaluation of Black people. This devaluation has led to institutional and individual racist violence against Black people causing endemic, unfathomable pain and historical racial trauma. In this session, participants will learn about the intersectionality of race and racialized trauma as it relates to physical, social-emotional and mental health of Black students, and will develop an understanding about the detrimental impact of racism on the lived experiences of Black students and will explore strategies and resources that seek to support the well-being of Black students.
