How can teachers and students negotiate cultural differences when they are of different races or nationalities? For instance, what happens (1) when faculty who are not African American teach at historically black universities, (2) when African American faculty teach multicultural classes, or (3) when faculty teach abroad? Coming from different countries and ethnic backgrounds, four Howard University professors present their perspectives on such issues during this guest panel on teaching in a multicultural classroom.
