Black Fatigue is a term that describes a harmful syndrome which is prevalent for many in the Black community. It can impact every aspect of an individual’s life including their ability to work at their best level due to things such as disillusionment, insecurities, lack of engagement and lack of trust.

At this Dialogue, we will hear from and engage with Mary-Frances Winters. She is the author of the book Black Fatigue: How Racism Erodes the Mind, Body and Spirit, within which she coined the term “Black Fatigue” and defined the syndrome. Please join us for an engaging discussion of:

  • Definition and characteristics of Black Fatigue;
  • Its impact on minds, bodies and spirits;
  • Strategies to protect against Black Fatigue; and
  • Strategies to impede Black Fatigue by achieving sustainable anti-racist impact.
