This is the first book to define and explore Black fatigue, the intergenerational impact of systemic racism on the physical and psychological health of Black peopleand explain why and how society needs to collectively do more to combat its pernicious effects. Black people, young and old, are fatigued, says award-winning diversity and inclusion leader Mary-Frances Winters. It is physically, mentally, and emotionally draining to continue to experience inequities and even atrocities, day after day, when justice is a God-given and legislated right. And it is exhausting to have to constantly explain this to white people, evenand especiallywell-meaning white people, who fall prey to white fragility and too often are unwittingly complicit in upholding the very systems they say they want dismantled. This book, designed to illuminate the myriad dire consequences of "living while Black, "came at the urging of Winters's Black friends and colleagues. Winters describes how in every aspect of life--from economics to education, work, criminal justice, and, very importantly, health outcomesfor the most part, the trajectory for Black people is not improving. It is paradoxical that, with all the attention focused over the last fifty years on social justice and diversity and inclusion, little progress has been made in actualizing the vision of an equitable society. Black people are quite literally sick and tired of being sick and tired. Winters writes that "my hope for this book is that it will provide a comprehensive summary of the consequences of Black fatigue, and awaken activism in those who care about equity and justicethose who care that intergenerational fatigue is tearing at the very core of a whole race of people who are simply asking for what they deserve."… (més)

Note: I accessed a digital review copy of this book through Edelweiss.

Borrowed on a whim from the library since it seemed like an interesting concept. I've watched some discussions about recommendations or whatever the opposition of recommendations are regarding certain book that discuss race, racism, white supremacy, etc. and I was wondering how this book might fit and what the author means by "Black Fatigue."

If you've been thinking about of the above topics lately then a lot of the information within this book is not new. The author lays out the many issues that Black People face and how racism affects them and how it can manifest itself in many ways: socially, at work, in personal relationships, and more. And lays out how and why Black People are, well, tired. Tired of explaining, tired of defending themselves, tired of dealing with these issues over and over and over again.

For me, personally, I thought the information itself wasn't new to me since I've been trying to educate myself and learn more. I would say, though, that the framing of the book is really useful. Instead of ONLY saying racism is wrong, or focusing only on what others should do (the author does offer some points, though), I thought it was beneficial to outline how and why it is now a a matter of "fatigue."

Overall, I thought this was a good read, but am not sure if people would find anything necessarily "new" in here that hasn't been in discussion in the past several months. I would recommend this to be read in light of other anti-racist reading as a companion book (ie, don't stop at 'White Fragility'). This might also be really useful for leaders in the workplace--be careful when you ask Black People (and other marginalized people but this book is about Black Fatigue) to do work around diversity, equity, inclusion and justice and be aware of the burden that is being placed upon them.

Library borrow for me and that was best. ( )
