Graphic for Connections section


We were excited to have had guest speaker Jaena Alabi give us a great session. She talked to us about “Racial microaggressions: Their effects on mental and physical health.”

Jaena Alabi presented a brief history of racial microaggressions research, focusing on the negative mental and physical health outcomes associated with experiencing subtle racism.  Strategies for mitigating the negative effects of racial microaggressions, such as incorporating cultural competence into one’s practice of librarianship, will also be shared.

Recordings of past sessions are available on our YouTube channel.
