ABSTRACT. Research has shown how black scholars’ experiences differ from those of their white counterparts in regard to research and service, but few studies have addressed the influence of race on professors’ teaching experiences. In this paper I examine how and to what degree race shapes professors’ perceptions and experiences in the undergraduate college classroom. I analyze how students’ social and cultural expectations about race affect professors’ emotional labor and management, shaping the overall nature of their jobs.
