Black History Knowledge as a Psychological Resource

A growing body of research suggests Black Americans thrive in the face of racial adversity
when provided the resources to challenge oppressive narratives and systems. Black
history knowledge (BHK) is one such psychological resource that has been identified as
challenging and correcting deficit narratives about Black Americans while simultaneously
fostering cultural pride. This talk aims to introduce a framework for BHK as a psychological
resource and explore BHK in the context of psychosocial outcomes. Implications for
research, practice, training, and social justice advocacy will also be examined.
