-Academics for Black Survival and Wellness
The Feminist Media Studio is thrilled to announce the presentation of Black Healing Event in collaboration with Academics for Black Survival and Wellness, the Black Student Union, and the Decolonial Perspectives and Practices Hub.
Come join us as we take a deep dive into radical healing and wellness for Black academics. In a space created for us and by us come hear Dr. Della Mosley present on strategies for healing from racial trauma and the path towards personal and collective wellness and liberation.
The presentation will be followed by a group conversation co-facilitated by Dr. Della Mosley and BSU to enable a collective exploration of radical healing and wellness while making space for participants to share their reflections and questions.
Come and let’s unpack, heal, and grow together in community!

BSU was formed to create a safe space for all black students, all while advocating for black lives, fostering an anti-racist environment and educating about the African diaspora.
