Creating Community on the Margins: The Successful Black Female Academician
Hinton, Dawn
Urban Review: Issues and Ideas in Public Education, v42 n5 p394-402 Dec 2010
The experiences of a Black Female academic, working at a Predominately White Institution (PWI), is explored in this work. The author suggests that Black women have been historically marginalized within most PWI's and historically this has been viewed in a negative light. Here it is suggested that Black women in academe view this position as one of power which can be used to propel them towards the goals of tenure and promotion. This work uses Black Feminist Theory to examine these experiences and to provide a proper context for analysis.
