Black history in the U.S., especially the periods involving slavery, has hard subject matter. And if not taught thoughtfully, the history lessons run the risk of instilling shame in some Black students in their identity and ancestry.
Reset brings on two Black mental health professionals aiming to counteract these types of threats to Black youth’s self-regard in a virtual event called “Teaching Slavery and Black History With Pride.”
GUESTS: Tatiana Lane, rapper under the performing name Mztaty; founder of Mental Health Meets Hip-Hop
Obari Cartman, community psychologist; president of the Chicago Association of Black Psychologists
