Black Male Deviance
     

Black Male Deviance

by Anthony Lemelle
 

Many studies of Black men have been and will be produced, but most have approached the subject from angles other than a position of scholarship that explores how Black men have come to be socially produced as deviants, and asks how have persons in academe participated in the production of these perceived deviants, and how has the Black community responded to this

Overview

Many studies of Black men have been and will be produced, but most have approached the subject from angles other than a position of scholarship that explores how Black men have come to be socially produced as deviants, and asks how have persons in academe participated in the production of these perceived deviants, and how has the Black community responded to this social construct of a role. This work is directed toward sociologists and those who are interested in the study of the Black community.

Lemelle (sociology, Purdue U.) provides a focused analysis of social deviance and control. Includes a discussion of Richard Wright's Native Son; the internal logic of domination of African American males and concomitant white supremacist logics; African American ritual organization; the history of domination of the black male; the history of black male deviance vis-a-vis major theories of deviance; the connection between social experience and consciousness; and implications for a specifically left-wing social policy approach toward black males.
