Librarian laments ‘fatigue’ from ‘presence of white people’

(CAMPUS REFORM) — A New York University librarian recently bemoaned the “racial fatigue” she experiences “in the presence of white people” following an academic conference.

April Hathcock, a Scholarly Communications Librarian at NYU, recently attended the annual American Library Association [ALA] conference in Chicago, a trade conference for people in the library profession.

Right after the conference, Hathcock took to her personal blog to describe her “Post-ALA Race Fatigue,” lamenting that she was suffering from “serious race fatigue” after spending five days amongst her colleagues [emphasis in original].
