"Whose World Is This?": A Composite Counterstory of Black Male Elementary School Teachers as Hip-Hop Otherfathers
Hicks Tafari, Dawn N.
Urban Review: Issues and Ideas in Public Education, v50 n5 p795-817 Dec 2018
From a critical race theory lens, the author shares data from a yearlong study on Black male elementary school teachers from the Hip-Hop generation. In this article, the author represents the data from said study as a composite counterstory which highlights how Black males are alienated, adultified, and criminalized in American public schools. Furthermore, in this article, the concept of otherfathering is comprehensively defined as it relates to how Black male teachers mentor and support their students.
