Automatically Discounted: Using Black Feminist Theory to Critically Analyze the Experiences of Black Female Faculty
Davis, Shametrice; Brown, Kelly
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v12 n1 Spr 2017
Black female faculty (BFF) automatically face a number of (un)conscience struggles as they enter into the academy as junior faculty. As a result, there is often a sense of burnout and overcompensation to mitigate the oppressive experiences related to race and gender. This article conceptualizes a thorough review of the literature of the struggle that many BFF contend with in institutions of higher education. The authors emphasize the importance of studying the role BFF can play in transforming and diversifying the culture and climate of these institutions, in order to increase awareness and access to other BFF in the academy.
