One thought on “Teaching While Black: speaks to the issues that affect faculty of color in the classroom

  1. This article was definitely a “once again” eye opener as we sometimes tend to forget that issues of racism still occur EVERYWHERE in this day and age. For one, I was personally unaware that race was something coming into play during an educator’s evaluation, and the thought of it is pretty sickening. I am aware of the fact that privately, we are each entitled to our own feelings, but there is no way to try and justify those feelings when considering one’s work ethics. How a person works and how great they are at what they do has nothing to do with their race. I would love to share this with fellow colleagues of color to get their input on this issue.
