Today’s show is a rebroadcast from December 27, 2021:
On today’s Bring It On!, hosts, William Hosea and Gloria Howell spend the hour with Drs. Tennisha Riley, James Brooks, and Amrita Myers to help us better understand the mental state of college students in general and how they appear to be coping during a pandemic era.
Dr. Tennisha Riley is an assistant professor in the Counseling & Educational Psychology department with an appointment in Human Development. Her extensive research seeks to expand our foundational knowledge of adolescent emotional development and situate that knowledge within a sociocultural context for Black youth. She received her Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from Virginia Commonwealth University and subsequently completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Indiana University’s Center for Research on Race and Ethnicity in Society.
Dr. James Brooks, assistant professor of Counseling Psychology at Indiana University. Dr. Brooks has expertise in relationship counseling and the impact of race & racism on multiracial families and interracial relationships. As a clinical psychologist, Dr. Brooks has worked with students on campus (here at IU and at Tennessee State University) around their mental health needs and has worked with students who are counselors in training to help them.
Dr. Amrita Myers is a renowned Ruth N. Halls associate professor of History and Gender Studies at Indiana University and a consulting editor of the Journal of American History. Amrita is a historian of the black female experience in the United States, and her research interests revolve around issues of race, gender, freedom, and power and the ways in which these constructs intersect with one another in the lives of black women in the Old South. She is also the author of Forging Freedom: Black Women and the Pursuit of Liberty in Antebellum Charleston, 1790- 1860.
