Be Prepared for Racism and Sexism

Being a Black woman on a predominately white (or even an HBCU) campus isn’t easy. You might find yourself battling racism, but sexism too. And while it can be defeating, remember that you are an amazing woman who deserves the education you are getting. Fight back and stay strong.
