Beyond These Walls – Black Communities and Families: Exploring Strength, Assets and Resilience Across Contexts

April 22 @ 3:00 pm

The Graduate School’s DSS program invites the Carolina campus community to the Beyond These Walls virtual presentation.

Research featuring graduate students in the Strengths, Assets & Resilience (StAR Lab) under the direction of Dr. Shauna M. Cooper, Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience.

Current research has strived to disrupt deficit-based approaches that often ignore the cultural strengths and assets of Black communities. Building upon these efforts, this research colloquium, “Black Communities and Families: Exploring Strengths, Assets, and Resilience Across Contexts,” underscores the importance of culturally relevant studies for understudied populations within the Black community: Black fathers and Black LGBTQ young adults.

Presenters will include:

  • Margarett McBride, Doctoral Student, Psychology, will present “Multidimensional Social Support and Parenting among Black Fathers: A Profile-Oriented Approach”
  • Marketa Burnett, Doctoral Student, Developmental Psychology, will present “Black Fathers’ STEM-focused Racial Socialization: Associations with Discrimination Experiences and Gender”
  • Janae Shaheed, Doctoral Student, Developmental Psychology, will present “Intragroup Marginalization and Community: Pathways to Activism among Black LGBTQ Emerging Adults”
