In this article, Jennifer L. McCarthy Foubert draws attention to Black parents’ collective school engagement. Applying critical race theory’s critique of liberalism as a theoretical frame, she argues that Black parents who participated in her qualitative multicase study resisted white supremacy as they engaged for the collective in everyday school involvement, school and extracurricular choices, and parent groups. She concludes by urging family-school partnership scholars, policy makers, and school leader and teacher educators to embrace collective engagement for its contributions to educational justice.
