It is not a common occurence that we present books by other publishers, but we are happy to make an exception for an unique book, Black Fatigue - How Racism Erodes the Mind, Body, and Spirit by Mary-Frances Winters and published by Berrett Koehler Publisher (an Oakland based publishing company dedicated to change the world for the better).
Black Fatigue is the first book to define and explore Black fatigue, the intergenerational impact of racism on the physical and psychological health of Black people--and explain why and how society needs to collectively do more to combat its pernicious effects.
“Black Fatigue is unbelievably well-written, unrelentingly honest, and unapologetically focused on the specific experiences of Black people. This book is indispensable for anyone who wants to thoroughly analyze and dismantle racism.”
—Dr. Marc Lamont Hill, award-winning author, and Professor of Media Studies and Urban Education, Temple University
“Black Fatigue tells the truth. Mary-Frances Winters brilliantly shows us how......
Black fatigue animates our way of living and how the racism that causes it shapes social structures and affects the distribution of advantage and disadvantage.”
—Eddie S. Glaude Jr., author of Begin Again: James Baldwin’s America and Its Urgent Lessons for Our Own, and Chair, Department of African American Studies, Princeton University
We recommend reading this book in conjunction with The African Unconcious by Edward Bruce Bynum, to connect the current issues with the Black Lives Matter movement with a Afro-centric look at human history.
