The Social Construction of Black Masculinity

An Ethnographic Study

Steven R. Cureton

This book examines the legacy of negotiating Black masculinity in a relatively free society that forced Black men to justify claims of equitable humanity. This book represents an unapologetic narrative about behavioral choices by Black men, which were framed by a history of forced distancing from his covenant with God, deliberate character assassinations, and emasculation in plain sight of his women and children.
