Reviews

"William Hoston's Black Masculinity in the Obama Era seeks to understand the racial discrimination and disparities that have highlighted the struggles of Black males. Too often the black male has been presented in the context of double-consciousness; race as a social construct in congruence with the dichotomy of skin-color, a black juxtaposed against a white binary; a psychosexual matrix a black male (a biological species) but not a black man; and psychohistory a study of the changing meaning of symbols. Hoston, instead, shapes a study of institutional parameters that impact the black man." Ronald Dorris, Professor of African American & Diaspora Studies and English, Xavier University of Louisiana, USA
