Full Description

This is the first book to define and explore "black fatigue," the multigenerational impact of systemic racism on the physical and mental health of black people--and how to combat its pernicious effects. "Living while black" is a new and viral term that catalogues the many unjust experiences and inequities that define what it means to be black. Having to constantly deal with these experiences leads to what diversity and inclusion thought leader Mary-Frances Winters calls "black fatigue," a particular form of extreme tiredness that continues to tear the nation apart. In this book she chronicles the fear, frustration, anguish, and anger that is a unique and normalized part of living while black and prevails intergenerationally. In every aspect of life, from socioeconomics, education, and the workforce to criminal justice and health outcomes, the trajectory for black people is getting worse. Black folks are quite literally sick and tired of being sick and tired. This book will lead to more invigorating conversations around race and offers coping mechanisms and self-care advice that centers on the needs of black people to combat black fatigue.
