The current essay employs composite counterstorytelling to narrate the experiences of black male faculty on traditionally white campuses.
Situated at the intersections of race and gender, this composite counterstory is richly informed by 11 interviews with black male faculty alongside critical race scholarship that documents the omnipresence of black misandric ideology.
Through the protagonist, who is a black male Assistant Professor, the authors reflect on how his daily experiences incite racial battle fatigue, feed into imposter syndrome, and circumvent an inclusive campus community.
