Session Description:

This session will focus on how the current U.S. sociopolitical climate (related explicitly to anti-Black racism and nativism) is impacting Black students of diverse ethnicities and nativities as well as Black intra-racial dynamics on campuses. We will use current racial movements (e.g., ADOS, Black Lives Matter) and incidents (Trump's comments on Global South) alongside our empirical research to share and co-construct strategies for supporting diverse Black students. This session should particularly benefit individuals working with Black, immigrant and/or international students as well as those interested in campus racial dynamics and/or internationalization. Participants attending this presentation will: connect the influence of the U.S. sociopolitical climate to the college experiences of diverse Black students, particularly racist nativism, anti-Blackness, racial homogenizing, and intra-racial dynamics (tensions and community); identify practices that address Black student heterogeneity and Black intra-racial dynamics across ethnicity and nativity; and assess whether their campus practices acknowledge Black student heterogeneity.
