Title: Conducting Research on Racism and Racial Battle Fatigue
Abstract: Repeated racism can lead to racial battle fatigue, which has negative consequences on Black people’s physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. How do Black researchers conduct research with participants on racism and racial battle fatigue in healthy ways? How do Black researchers exercise care and not further harm Black participants in the midst of doing research on racism and racial battle fatigue? And how do Black researchers care for their own wellbeing in the process of doing research on a potentially exhausting topic? The purpose of this session is to address these questions and discuss culturally-responsive ways for researching racism and racial battle fatigue that prioritize care and wellbeing among Black researchers and participants.
