For this seminar I will use examples from history, current events, and my own interviews with Black men to discuss how anti-Black racism shapes how Black life is both experienced and perceived. I aim to make this a challenging, yet worthwhile, discussion that will lead you to consider the roles of prevention scientists in dismantling (or perpetuating) structural racism through research, outreach, and teaching/mentoring.
