Black Fatigue : How Racism Erodes the Mind, Body, and Spirit

Winters, Mary-Frances2020
Books
This is the first book to define and explore Black fatigue, the intergenerational impact of systemic racism on the physical and psychological health of Black people - and explain why and how society needs to collectively do more to combat its pernicious effects. Black people, young and old, are fatigued, says award-winning diversity and inclusion leader Mary-Frances Winters. It is physically, mentally, and emotionally draining to continue to experience inequities and even atrocities, day after day, when justice is a God-given and legislated right. And it is exhausting to have to constantly explain this to White people, even - and especially - well-meaning White people, who fall prey to white fragility and too often are unwittingly complicit in upholding the very systems they say they want dismantled.
