“Black teachers are expected to improve the racial literacy of their colleagues and school culture while simultaneously experiencing burnout from racial battle fatigue.”

Jessica Lee Stovall, a current fellow in the Department of African American Studies, has published a piece in Volume 113 of the English Journal titled “Black Teachers’ Use of Liberatory Design to Promote Literacies of Healing” in which she discusses the importance of Black teachers and why many Black teachers are leaving the classroom.
