Mentorship benefits for Black women on campus detailed in 'Sister Resisters'
Getting through university offers plenty of challenges for any student. Add darker skin color on a mostly-white campus, and the degree of difficulty goes up, especially for women.
Having allies helps, as Janie Victoria Ward and Tracy L. Robinson-Wood write in Sister Resisters: Mentoring Black Women on Campus.
It is a guide for both mentee and mentor, for white women to improve their cultural competency, and for women of color to better navigate the world of campus.
