"Sista Doctas" Taking a Seat at the Table: Advocacy and Agency among Women of Color in Teacher Education
Williams Shealey, Monika; Alvarez McHatton, Patricia; McCray, Erica; Thomas, Ursula
NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, v7 n1 p19-46 Jan 2014
The research literature devoted to examining the experiences of faculty from diverse backgrounds in higher education has contributed to a growing understanding of the complexities of working in these institutions, particularly predominantly White institutions. An analysis of the literature is provided, which yielded the following themes as central to the extent to which Faculty of Color successfully navigate life in the academy: isolation, resistance, teaching, and mentoring and support. These themes are exemplified through personal narratives from each of the coauthors, all Women of Color in teacher education. The authors conclude with recommendations for program development in higher education, proactive steps for Women of Color in these settings, and areas in need of further exploration and research.
