Description - Black Man Emerging by Joseph L. White
In the face of centuries of institutional and interpersonal racism, in the light of the signals they receive from society, and given the choices they must make about what they want from life and how to go about getting it - how can Black men in America realize their full potential? This work is a psychological and social portrait that reflects their personal views on the struggle of Black men against oppression and for self-determination. Using numerous case histories and biographical sketches of Black men who have failed and those who have prevailed, the authors describe strategies for responding to racism and entrenched power - underscoring the healing capacity of religion, family, Black consciousness movements, mentorships, educational programmes, paid employment, and other positive forces. They also explore the concept of identity as it applies to being Black and male and the influence of Black men on American culture.
