Abstract

The systemic racism in U.S. society being resisted through larger movements such as Black Lives Matter is also reflected and reproduced in U.S. higher education. This qualitative study examines how Black students contextualize their campus racial climate within broader race issues, tensions, and movements occurring across the nation. Findings reveal four themes: (1) Perceptions of Blackness on campus; (2) Campus racial climate mirroring societal racial climate; (3) Experiencing and engaging in movements on campus; (4) Impact of racial climate on future planning.
