S6E7 - Coping Collectively: A Conversation about Grief, Racial Trauma, and the Death of Worldviews
On this episode of The R.A.G.E. Podcast, host Micaela Parker talks to IRISE Post-Doctoral Fellow Allison Bair, a social psychologist who received her PhD from York University in Toronto. She studies the social etiology of physical and mental health outcomes among stigmatized group members. As a Black Canadian with Jamaican roots, Allison Bair is conscious of how racial identity is influenced by racial and cultural context. In this dialogue, they discuss Allison's work regarding collective grief, racial trauma, racial socialization themes, the presence of barriers to social justice, racial myths, and how these all tie into our American identity. Through this dialogue, we can bridge the COVID-19 pandemic, the death of George Floyd, and how these contemporary events connect to the death of worldviews.
