9780807009369: Speak My Name: Black Men on Masculinity and the American Dream

Through the voices of some of today's most prominent African-American writers, this collection of essays and stories on contemporary African-American men's experience explores the intimate territory beyond the myths about brutalizing and bruatalized black men in a harsh white world. Includes works by Houston Baker, Amiri Baraka, Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Walter Mosley, and John E. Wideman.

Review:

The nearly 30 essays collected here explore aspects of what it is to be a black man in America that all too often don't appear on television or in the newspapers. Writers as well-known as John Edgar Wideman and Walter Mosley (as well as emerging writers whose names we'll soon know better) consider the experience of being a son or being a father, meditate on violence and its effects, and share their losses, joys and triumphs.
