The current study examines how Black undergraduate students at a predominantly White university respond to the racism they encounter on campus. Specifically, the case study seeks to identify (a) the response strategies that Black undergraduate students utilize to help them endure racism on campus and (b) what these students learn from their racialized experiences. Qualitative research methodology captures the lived experiences of 12 Black undergraduate students through an online questionnaire and in-person, semi-structured interviews to gain insight into how they navigate racism on their White campus.
