Black Man Emerging by Michael Connor
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is an exciting revised edition of a classic text. The prevailing image of Black men in America continues to be an overwhelmingly negative one, in spite of recent high profile changes (e.g. Barack Obama). The purpose of this book has been - and continues to be - to cast a new, more positive light on African-American masculinity, and to take a position on how to repair the damage of racism.
