This article examines a personal journey of a foreign-born instructor in America’s teacher preparation programs. As a foreign-born Black woman teacher educator I came to America to live the American Dream. The American dream to me was to complete graduate studies and to leave my mark as a teacher in teacher preparation programs. Fortunately that dream has been realized. However, as a foreign born African female scholar the academic journey at times has been filled with challenges related to gender, race, and immigrant status discrimination.

Keywords: Key Terms: Teacher Preparation Programs; Inequalities; Recruitment; Retention; and Marginalized Group; Foreign-born African American.
