, Professor in the Department of Psychological Sciences and expert in stress management (particularly among African American women), recently had an article published in the Harvard Business Review entitled, "How Organizations Can Support the Mental Health of Black Employees."

"First, it’s important to understand that when Black Americans watched the video of George Floyd being killed by a white police officer, we saw ourselves. In those eight minutes and 46 seconds, we were horrified, enraged, and anguished as a man who could have been our spouse, our brother, our son, our nephew, our cousin, or us was killed. Collectively, Black Americans were traumatized."
