African-descent communities gamble just like all communities, and gambling has historically offered not just entertainment but also a way for men to care for their families. Due to systemic racism, structural barriers, and social injustice, African-descent persons and communities may gamble also to escape emotional and financial distress from lived realities that are painful. How do we support African-descent gamblers, affected others, and community members? What Afrocentric and health equity strategies can we use to help our community “breathe through life better?” This session, led by Dr. Deborah G. Haskins, is a cultural review of problem gambling.
