Abstract This study documented the similarities and differences in the experiences of Black doctoral students with racism and RBTS. For this study, the researcher focused on six Black doctoral students and their lived experiences with racism in society and specifically at a large mid-western university. There is a history of research on racism, and there are also gaps in our understanding of the impact of racism on Black doctoral students (Barker, 2016; Truong & Museus, 2012). The construct of race, forms of racism, and the consequences of racism have been studied in great depth. Nevertheless, although there is a growing trend in research examining the unique needs of Black students (Allen et al., 2003; Barker, 2011; Davidson & Foster-Johnson, 2001), few have examined racism and the lived experiences of Black doctoral students specifically. To best support this student population, more research is needed that examines their actual experiences and applies their experiences to intentional policy shifts within institutions.
