Stories Deep Within: Narratives of U.S. Teachers of Color from Diasporic Settings
Kambutu, John; Rios, Francisco; Castaneda, Carmelita
Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority Education, v3 n2 p96-109 2009
In this qualitative investigation, racial and ethnic minority teachers (N = 6) used personal stories to elucidate their experiences with social injustices that have impacted their teaching in rural schools. These counter-stories serve to disrupt orthodox conceptions of teachers of color, to resituate their work in their cultural positions, and to demonstrate the ways in which their experiences with oppression and resistance affect their teaching in rural settings. (Contains 1 table and 5 footnotes.)
