Time:  May 27, 2015 at 2:00PM EDT

Presenter: Dr. Robin Hughes, Associate Professor of Educational Leadership & Policy Studies in the IUPUI School of Education

Title: Responding to Institutionalized Racism, Racialized Mental Abuse and Macro-aggressive Behaviors:  Why I am a Healthy, Angry Black Woman

Description:  Often Black women are faced with the dilemma of whether or not to respond to racist situations knowing that the “Angry Black Woman” stereotype results in White listeners turning away and tuning out.  Such “angry women” stereotypes act to deprive women of color and especially Black women of their voices when they seek to raise objections to racism exhibited in institutionalized forms or in individual behaviors and comments.  This deprivation, together with being the frequent targets of racist macro/micro-aggressive behavior, challenges the mental well-being of women of color.  Dr. Hughes will present a multi-faceted webinar that seeks to provide insights on how women of color can maintain their mental health in the face of such challenges.

The Equity Institute on Race, Culture & Transformative Action at IUPUI has partnered with the Division of Mental Health & Addiction to provide an online cultural competency training program.
