Abstract

Reflecting on the collective traumas of the COVID-19 pandemic and the metaphorical racial reckoning of the summer of 2020, two Black women within the academy share their reflections through an intersectional collaborative autoethnography. One overarching theme, intersectional racialized trauma, and two subthemes, (a) feelings of helplessness due to collective trauma and (b) Black women get tired too, emerged as findings from this study. The piece closes with recommendations for Black women academicians navigating the academy.
