"Teaching while Black": Narratives of African American Student Affairs Faculty
Patton, Lori D.; Catching, Christopher
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v22 n6 p713-728 Nov 2009
African American faculty have historically been underrepresented within predominantly white institutions (PWIs) and deal with academic isolation, marginalization of their scholarship, and racial hostility. Little is known about the experiences of African American faculty who teach in student affairs graduate programs. The purpose of this study was to focus on their experiences through examination and utilization of their personal counter-narratives. This paper highlights the racial profiling that often shapes their experiences. We employ a qualitative critical race analysis that utilizes counter-storytelling as method to elucidate the experiences of the 13 African American faculty participants in our study.
