Clyde Franklin suggests that "not only are other's perceptions about black men's masculinities affected by societal stereotypes of black men, but black men's perceptions of their own masculinities are also affected." Using Franklin's assertion as a departure point, this course will explore some of the origins of the popular constructions of black masculinity as they appear in selected 20th century literary and filmic texts. Authors may include, Wright, Gaines, Walker, Miller, Hemphill, Morrison, Beatty, Mosley, and Baraka among others. Note: Also listed as AFST 340 and AMST 356.
