Different Bodies & Different Lives In Academia: Why The Rules Aren’t The Same For Everyone

The journey through academia is not the same for everyone. My colleague Tressie McMillan Cottom, doctoral candidate of Sociology at Emory University, writes an amazing blog titled “Some of Us Are Brave” named after Black Women’s studies anthology “But Some Of Us Are Brave: All the Women Are White, All the Blacks Are Men: Black Women’s Studies”. Ms. McMillan Cottom addresses issues that impact higher education and underrepresented students.

She gives great insight. This blog speaks to many of the experiences I have had as a graduate student and I have seen for faculty of color as well. Microagressions…all the time.
