Summary "Leading scholars examine the felt experience of being the target of racism, with a focus on mental and physical health as the result of particular racist encounters as well as across the lifespan in addition to group contexts such as education and the workforce. Authors examine the subtle but persistent links between everyday microagressions and historical racial trauma, and offer practical tools to assess and measure perceived racial discrimination. They describe compelling new interventions for individuals and communities, and offer social policy prescriptions to promote healing and help dismantle institutional discrimination."--Provided by publisher.
