Dr. Glover will examine the intersectionality of biological sex and racial status in mental health disparities, presenting evidence linking racial disparities in reproductive factors to mental health outcomes that disproportionately harm Black women.
The Freedom School series’ purpose is to share academic knowledge with the broader community, thereby reducing the boundaries between campus and community. This year’s series takes place as the Department of Africana Studies celebrates its 30th anniversary, which you can learn more about here: https://africana.gsu.edu/thirtieth-anniversary/.
