  • Research Description

    My project focuses on a group of 13 African American high school football coaches. The first part of the dissertation challenges the myth of the emotionally inept (Black) male by examining the ways these men share intimate conversation and build community. The second part engages the coaches who also are educators, examining their critiques of the No Child Left Behind era educational system and documenting the pedagogical and interpersonal strategies these teachers use to reach kids and mitigate burnout.
