Racially Minoritized Young People’s Experiences of Navigating COVID-19 Challenges: A Community Cultural Wealth Perspective with Prof Claudia Bernard, Goldsmiths, University of London on 18 October 12:00-13:00

There was significant evidence early in the COVID-19 pandemic that racial bias, inequities, and disparities resulted in Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities being disproportionately impacted. Using a qualitative approach, the Children, Young People and Families study explored the influential factors that impacted the well-being and resilience of Black and Asian youth aged 12-19. Findings highlight the intersection of multiple disadvantages, including economic stressors, food poverty, digital inequality, disrupted education, and disproportionate losses, all of which impacted family functioning, peer-to-peer support, friendships, and social connection, were substantially compounded by racial inequality. This study used a community cultural wealth perspective to surface the specificities that can enable or impede resilience for racially minoritised young people facing risks and challenges that are rooted in racial disparities and compounded by intersectional forms of inequalities.
