Different words that have the same meaning are called synonyms.  For example, ‘big’ is a synonym for ‘large.’  Join us in playing the Same Game as we explore synonyms.

MEES book cover

Educational Book for Adults

Product Name: MEES and Me: Musings of a Mad Matriarch

Author: Grace Carroll, Ph.D.

Publisher: Chandler White Publications

Type of Item: 55-page softcover book for adults

Price: $9.99

Item Description: This handbook was written to help better understand Mundane Extreme Environmental Stress (M.E.E.S.) defined by the author as the stress experienced by African Americans that is associated with race and racism. If we better understand the impact of racism on how we think and act, we can then form a more clear vision and personal action plan of how we can cope with, and even thrive, within this context. Clearly, the most ideal set of circumstances is for the context to change, for there to be an end to racism. However, our experiences individually and collectively indicate that racism is very resilient. It doesn’t go away. It adapts, it changes, it evolves, but unfortunately it doesn’t disappear.

The handbook includes discussions and insights surrounding the following questions,

  • Why do we feel and act as we do regarding race?
  • Is there a racism toll?
  • How do we respond to M.E.E.S.?
  • Is there an inoculation for M.E.E.S.?
  • Are there strategies to combat M.E.E.S.?
