Reviews
"Black Fatigue tells the truth. Mary-Frances Winters brilliantly shows us how Black fatigue animates our way of living and how the racism that causes it shapes social structures and affects the distribution of advantage and disadvantage."
--Eddie S. Glaude Jr., author of Begin Again: James Baldwin's America and Its Urgent Lessons for Our Own, and Chair, Department of African American Studies, Princeton University

"Black Fatigue is unbelievably well-written, unrelentingly honest, and unapologetically focused on the specific experiences of Black people. This book is indispensable for anyone who wants to thoroughly analyze and dismantle racism."
--Dr. Marc Lamont Hill, award-winning author, social justice activist, and Professor of Media Studies and Urban Education, Temple University

"An effective defense to use against so-called good white people when they ask a Black person to educate them about racism. Hand them this book and save your energy for Black people and Black communities instead!"
--Shannon Sullivan, Chair and Professor of Philosophy, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and author of Revealing Whiteness

"Mary-Frances Winters's Black Fatigue is one of 2020's most essential books. Winters's work as a diversity and inclusion leader informs this exploration of the toll that systemic racism takes on Black people every single day, and the need for activism that leads to meaningful, radical change."
--Popsugar

"Highlights how every aspect of life Black people navigate has not gotten better. Winters hopes to inspire aspiring allies with better insight into the Black experience."
--Book Riot, 12 Essential Books About Black History and Identity
