The target of this work is to understand how the formation process of the professional identity of the black teacher is. For that, I make use of the following research question: in which circumstances black teachers build their professional identity and have it recognized? In order to find an answer to this question, this research is based on concepts like: whitening ideology; racial democracy; personal, social, ethnic, racial and professional identity formation; and, mainly, in the talk with the teachers who took part of it. Through the subjectiveness of these teachers I try to understand how their professional identity takes place and which strategies are used by them in order to have their professional value recognized in a society that preaches a supposed equality among all the citizens. Our analysis, made from a investigative position on the basis of the Phenomenology, is based on what teachers think about the ethnic and racial relations of their life experiences in family, work and classroom. So, this work intends to attract attention to the relations in the school environment, which is not free of racism, the evil that, unfortunately, permeates the society. This study tries to show what was left to see in the comprehensive description and the interpretations of the talk we had with the participants. For that, we made the following question: who are the black teachers in this research? The black teachers of this study are people to whom the family represents the point on which they rely for the construction of their values in relation to the study and work. They are people to whom the study is an open door for the world, to which they give themselves. They are readers up to some part of their lives they are self-taught. They are people who have pride of their academic formation and remain in constant update. They are people who had lived the constraint of the ethnic-racial discrimination at school or at work. They are professionals who have to show greater ability at the school environment. They are teachers who work in order to make their black pupils get a positive auto-esteem. They also work for the equality in relation to the ethnic-racial and economical-social questions. At last, they are black teachers who have got the professional recognition.
