Still Flies in Buttermilk: Black Male Faculty, Critical Race Theory, and Composite Counterstorytelling
Griffin, Rachel Alicia; Ward, LaCharles; Phillips, Amanda R.
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v27 n10 p1354-1375 2014
Driven by critical race theory, this essay employs composite counterstorytelling to narrate the experiences of black male faculty on traditionally white campuses. Situated at the intersections of race and gender, our composite counterstory is richly informed by 11 interviews with black male faculty alongside critical race scholarship that documents the omnipresence of black misandric ideology. Through our protagonist Dr Timesnow, a black male Assistant Professor, we reflect on how his daily experiences incite racial battle fatigue, feed into imposter syndrome, and circumvent an inclusive campus community.
