The" weathering" hypothesis has been proposed to explain the early health deterioration of Black women--and other marginalized groups--as a consequence of their exposure to negative societal stressors including prejudice, social alienation, institutional bias, political oppression, economic exclusion and racial discrimination.

Imbued with unapologetic, raw and unflinching honesty, the essays in Weathering boldly address the the joys and hardships of being an older--i.e. weathered--Black women in contemporary America. Award-winning author Kim McLarin utilizes deeply personal experiences, such as learning to ride a motorcycle, shoot a gun and taking care of an elderly parent, along with those with a broader political context--how she was targeted by a rightwing organization dedicated to attacking faculty who write or teach about racial injustice--to illuminate the pain and power of aging Black women. In the process, McLarin shines a light on a group that is often invisible. Powerfully speaking truth to power, Weathering is an important contribution to the ongoing dialogue about race, aging and feminism.
