Description : This qualitative case study examined Black male pre-service teachers in the Clemson University Call Me MISTER program regarding their feelings on race, masculinity, and their roles as educators. This case study used a narrative inquiry research design with a critical race theoretical framework to allow individual stories of participants to serve as counternarratives against deficit-focused framing of Black males in education. Data was collected via semi-structured interviews with 11 participants and a supplemental document analysis of materials collected from the program. The study produced five major findings: 1) Participants valued racial representation and desired to be role models; 2) participants resisted racist stereotypes; 3) participants felt that their Black masculinity made them both hypervisible and invisible on their campuses; 4) the Call Me MISTER program expanded their perspectives on masculinity; and 5) participants felt the MISTER brotherhood assisted in their success on Clemson's predominantly White campus. Findings from this study are valuable to those interested in bolstering Black male retention in teacher education programs and more broadly, their success on college campuses.
