A core question of teacher education—“What can I do?”—plagues courses on race in particular ways. Teachers routinely search for “concrete” applications of “theoretical” ideas about race, question the potential for “everyday” activity to dismantle inequality “structures,” and wrestle with the need for both professional and personal development on racial issues. In this article, the authors discuss how these three core tensions surfaced in one race-oriented teacher education course. The authors suggest that to create inquisitive and efficacious teachers, teacher educators can encourage teachers to keep all three tensions in play for the duration of their careers.
