Chapter Summary

Critical race theory (CRT) scholarship combines empirical and experiential knowledges, frequently in the form of storytelling, chronicles, or other creative narratives. This chapter utilizes CRT in education to challenge the silences of race-neutral storytelling in order to discuss the race-related stress Faculty of Color confront when navigating through historically White universities. Critical race scholars have expanded on Pierce's research to address how People of Color are experiencing and responding to racial microaggressions within and beyond the academy. CRT provides a useful tool to identify, analyze, and challenge racism in education and society. Certainly there are elements of fiction in the story, but the composite characters are grounded in real-life experiences, actual empirical data, and contextualized in social situations that are also grounded in real life, not fiction.

Keywords:critical race theory (CRT); racial microaggressions; racism; white universities
