CRRES Graduate Student Affiliate Nelson O. O. Zounlome publishes book “Letters to my Sisters & Brothers” which offers practical advice on navigating academia for students of color. The book is informed by Zounlome’s research as a doctoral candidate in counseling psychology, at the School of Education; he studies the impact of intersectional oppression on groups with marginalized identities with aims to help BIPOC Communities liberate themselves and achieve their wildest dreams. The book project emerged as a form of self-care following the murders of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and George Floyd amid the COVID-19 pandemic but Zounlome hopes it will also encourage other students to move forward in times of crisis. Readers can find culturally relevant advice from current Students of Color, evidence-based activities to help put guidance into practice, and coloring pages for additional self-care. Zounlome is also a McNair Scholar, NASEM/Ford Foundation Fellow, and Herman B. Wells Graduate Fellow.
