Masking Mentorship: Critical (Race) Care among Black Males in Special Education
mentoring, critical (race) care, ethic of risk, critical race theory
This chapter addresses institutional racism as an impediment to the success of Black males in special education, whether they are students or faculty. Extrapolating from their personal narratives and relevant literature, the authors provide a counternarrative about the mentoring and care of Black males and by Black males that entails the practice of masking. The lenses of critical race theory (CRT) and care theory support the development of an ethical and moral leadership framework they refer to as critical (race) care, which includes attention to the ethic of care, risk and political clarity.
