Abstract

The impact of racism on the mental health of African Americans has been well-documented. However, findings are inconsistent regarding the manner at which racial socialization practices might be effective in mitigating the effects of racism on the mental health of African Americans. Utilizing Moustakas’ (1994) Transcendental Phenomenological data analysis approach to seek the essence of a phenomena, the panel presentation will discuss the reflexive process engaged by a research team in better understanding the process of racial socialization practices and individual meaning making related to managing racism and discrimination encounters for African American college students. Panelists will share experiences starting with identifying significant statements through the emergence of thematic domains and associated themes in analyzing ten, 2.0 hour, individual semi-structured interviews with African American, undergraduate students ages 18-26. Panelists will also discuss the continuous process of bracketing and individual self-reflection.
