This timely work propels our understanding of African American men and women beyond the crossroads. Dr. Aldridge's insight and vision place Black male-female relationships in a liberating framework from which Blacks can initiate the crucial tasks of reclaiming ourselves, restoring our traditions, and reconstructing the African world.
A masterful examination of the myths and socio-political causes of discord between Black men and women. The author suggests that male/female relationships among Black Americans which fails to place the interpersonal within the broad institutional context falls short of providing a broad or macroanalytical modelany attempt to study. In Focusing, Dr. Aldridge has provided that model.
