SPEAKER SERIES | DR. STEPHEN JOHN QUAYE
RACIAL BATTLE FATIGUE
In the midst of a Covid-19 pandemic that disproportionately impacts Black and Brown people, Black people also contend with anti-Blackness and racism, which have negative consequences on their health and wellbeing. One result of this repeated racism is racial battle fatigue, which has psychological, physiological, and behavioral stress responses. In this session, participants will learn about racial battle fatigue, its health effects, and more importantly, what they might to do support their Black friends and colleagues in navigating it.
Stephen John Quaye is an associate professor in the Higher Education and Student Affairs Program at The Ohio State University. In this role, he works with graduate students on equity and social justice issues in an effort to help them learn about who they are and what they might contribute to the world. Stephen values dialogue and activism as vehicles for social change and often facilitates dialogues about privilege, power, and oppression among college students, faculty, and student affairs educators. His current work is focused on strategies Black educators and graduate students can use to heal from racial battle fatigue. In his free time, he likes to run, cycle, and bake.
