"They Think Minority Means Lesser than": Black Middle-Class Sons and Fathers Resisting Microaggressions in the School
Allen, Quaylan
Urban Education, v48 n2 p171-197 Mar 2013
The current literature on Black middle-class men is sparse, leaving little to be known about the raced, classed, and gendered experiences for many Black middle-class male students and their families. Employing qualitative methodology, this study uses critical race theory (CRT) to examine the educational experiences of Black middle-class high school male students through the counterstories of Black students and their fathers. This study highlights various microaggression events experienced by the male students as well as the forms of cultural wealth drawn upon by the fathers to divert the potential negative outcomes of school racism. (Contains 1 table and 5 notes.)
