dc.description.abstractThe study of the mental well-being of Black students at predominantly white colleges addresses issues of core theoretical and empirical concern to the discipline. This review summarizes current knowledge about Black mental health and identifies theoretical and procedural problems that continue to confront research in this field. Although a number of studies have focused on racial identity and the mental health Black students involved in the education system, few have investigated in depth the discriminatory experiences of Black students in conjunction with their mental well-being being upset, and providing the solution of an Afrocentric psychological healing remedy. To examine and study the relationship between Black students at PWI’s, their encounters with racism and discrimination, and their mental well-being, 66 Black students from a predominantly white college were sampled, as well as interviews with four Black students from a predominantly white college. Preliminary analysis indicates that there is a correlation between Black students who attend predominantly white colleges and negative effects on their mental health. The findings confirm that analysis and suggest that the reasoning is due to numerous discriminatory encounters with university professors, students, police, school administrators, and staff.en_US
