The paper is an account of an Afro-Caribbean, female Ph.D. candidate being called Aggressive while teaching at a predominately White institution (PWI) in the Midwest. The recollection of the experience explores, through the eyes of a Black female scholar, the emotions of being called Aggressive on a PWI campus and highlights the work that remains in helping develop future educators who are not threatened by ethnic and cultural diversity in the classroom.
