The Significance for Understanding and Recognizing Racial Battle Fatigue

William SmithThe Race and Ethnic Studies Institute (RESI), invites you to attend our upcoming Colloquia on Tuesday, February 22 at 12:00 PM CST. Dr. William Smith, Chair of the Department of Education, Culture and Society at the University of Utah, will be delivering his presentation designed to provide evidence for evaluating more effectively and holistically how our society functions differently for racialized people. 

The critical objection is recognizing how the foundation and history of race and racism reinforce the contemporary social and public health inequalities. Dr. Smith’s research focuses on his theoretical contribution of Racial Battle Fatigue: the cumulative and emotional, psychological, physiological, and behavioral effects of racial micro-level aggressions and macro-level aggressions have on racialized targets of racism. He summarizes this definition by saying it is a systemic racism-related repetitive stress injury.
