Black Students Matter Healing Space

The Black Students Healing Space is designed to be a safespace for students who identify as part of the Black/African American Diasporato process, to heal, get support, and share resources. 

Discussion topics will include a variety of subjects related to navigating the nuances of Black identity including dealing with racial trauma, responding to microaggressions, managing relationships, parenting in a racially charged landscape, maintaining physical and mental health, navigating racist environments, responding to racism in academics and employment settings, and maintaining safety in racist situations. 

We also dialogue about topics related to Black identity including gender identity, sexuality, colorism, internalized racism, media representation, cultural appropriation, and shifting identities in the Black community. The Black Students Healing Space strives to be a place of safety, support, and strength.   

Join us for a discussion of all things Black.
