My research into the Black accounting experience specifically aims to reveal the lived working lives of those often considered "Other." Questions such as how the raced, gendered and classed outsider successfully navigates career progression in the accountancy profession are explored. This study highlights the existence of often hidden institutionalized inequalities of race and gender in the field. A Critical Race Theory (CRT) framework is employed to examine the narratives of Black working life and frames the Black professionals' experience through a lens of race and sometimes at the intersection of gender. The value of this study lies in it's contribution to a field of study where little academic or industry research exists that examines the the professional experience of the Black accountant. Using a CRT lens accountancy, which is commonly viewed as a technocracy, is (re)imagined as a site of racial, gender and class struggle.
