Amplifying Voices: Five Approaches to Constructing Counternarratives that explore the African American Experience in the Workplace
Research suggests that African-American employees are being treated as if they do not matter in the American workplace, and that anti-Black racism continues to abound in many organizations. The current article will help address a gap in the literature by illustrating how the examination of African Americans' narratives will provide vital insight into how HRD practice can be advanced to combat workplace racism by understanding the importance of counterstorytelling. This research has important implications for adult education because better understandings of how anti-Blackness manifests in the workplace are essential to human resource development's ongoing efforts to combat racism and other forms of injustice in the workplace.
