I’ve spent the majority of my educational career in classrooms where I’m the only black face. Now, this isn’t an oddity, it’s not revolutionary ― most of my friends could tell you the same exact story, just in different institutions. It’s one of the things you sort of resign yourself to when you make the decision to attend a PWI. Or maybe you don’t resign yourself to it, maybe you reject it, maybe you petition university presidents and have sit-ins in the administration building and demand more minority acceptance/enrollment. Or maybe you do neither of those things.
