Available / dispatched within 1 - 2 weeks
This book centers on the topic of Black masculinity and how it is exhibited in media. Black masculinity, contrary to the mainstream opinion, is far from a homogeneous gendered and raced identity. Following the ideological lead by gender theorist Judith Butler, Black masculinity represents multiple performances across the gendered spectrum. The purpose of this text is to expand the academic literature, specifically within the disciplines of pop cultural, gender, and media studies, through a 21st century intersectional lens. As America is beginning to have intentional conversations about the topic of race, this text adds to the cultural and intellectual debate. Because of the nature of this text, it has impact and significance into broadening the understanding of Black masculinities not just to a college audience, but also to the larger reading public. This book is an excellent resource for students and professors in African-American Studies, American Studies, Cultural Studies, Communication Studies, Gender Studies, Ethnic American Studies, English, and Film/Television Programs and Gaming Studies.
