Sandra L. Shullman, PhD, president of the American Psychological Association recently stated
“We are living in a racism pandemic”. As with the Covid-19 pandemic, the racism pandemic is taking a disproportionately heavy toll on our African-American citizens and the health consequences are dire. We don’t have to wait for a vaccine against racism however, we already have it. Through education, empathy and mindful action we can fortify our minds, bodies and communities against the pandemic of racism.
