ABSTRACT: This essay centers the lived experiences of protagonist Dr. Eva Grace as a bisexual Black female Assistant Professor navigating identity politics and power dynamics at a traditionally and predominantly White institution. Theoretically anchored by Black feminist thought coupled with critical race theory’s composite counterstorytelling as method, Dr. Grace’s pre-tenure experiences reflect the mundane nature of systemic oppressions in the everyday lives of multiplicatively, marginalized faculty.
