Using Critical Race Theory (CRT) as a guiding framework, this paper is an educator’s testimonio against the post-racial ideology that currently plagues our society, especially as witnessed in the U.S. educational system. A testimonio is a qualitative narrative form that puts forth powerful messages that carry a sense of urgency. Testimonios speak to an individual’s experiences that resound across groups of people.Testimonios especially speak to oppression and marginalization and thus have been historically used in the struggles of people of color. Here the author speaks to how testimonios can be used as a means to debunk the post- racial fallacy.The author also argues that a firm understanding of ideology and knowledge of how whiteness works further strengthens the challenging work of people of color in the academy and beyond. As all other testimonios, this account urges that there be action and thus it calls on other educators from all walks of life and positions to respond to a call to rise if transformation is what is desired.
