"In this rich, eloquent, and indeed magisterial study, Marlon B. Ross explores how black manhood was constructed, produced, and reproduced under Jim Crow. At once cultural criticism and intellectual history, Manning the Race is a landmark contribution to the study of the deeply imbricated discourses of gender, sexuality, race, and nation."
-Valerie Smith,Princeton University
"This major effort describes and analyzes how African American men were socialized and imaged for their public and private roles in the early 20th Century. Ross takes readers deeper into new dimensions of the Harlem Renaissance and African American urban life."
”An ambitious intellectual history of black manhood reform in the New Negro Movement, dating roughly from the 1890s to the 1940s.”
