Overview

From headlines to street corners, the message resounds: Black men are in crisis. Politicians, preachers, and pundits routinely cast blame on those already ostracized within African American communities. But the crisis of black masculinity does not rest with "at-risk" youth of the hip-hop generation or men "on the down low" alone. In this provocative new book, acclaimed cultural critic Mark Anthony Neal argues that the "Strong Black Man"-an ideal championed by generations of African American civic leaders-may be at the heart of problems facing black men today.

Editorial Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times
One of the most brilliant cultural critics of his generation...Neal writes gracefully, thinks sharply, speaks cogently and is old school and new school at once. He's my favorite cultural critic and one hip brother.
