Synopsis: In the face of centuries of institutional and interpersonal racism, in light of the signals they receive from society, given the choices they must make about what they want from life and how to go about getting it -- how can Black men in America realize their full potential?In Black Man Emerging, psychologists Joseph White and James Henry Cones, III, fashion a moving psychological and social portrait that reflects the authors' personal views on the struggle against oppression and for self-determination by Black men. Using numerous case histories and biographical sketches of Black men who have failed and prevailed, the authors describe strategies for responding to racism and entrenched power -- underscoring the healing capacity of religion, family, Black consciousness movements, mentorships, educational programs, paid employment, and other positive forces. They also explore the concept of identity as it applies to being Black and male and the influence of Black men on American culture.Black Man Emerging is a poignant and personal discussion of the issues facing and felt by the Black men in this country and an important commentary on the conflicts born of human diversity.

Review: We are all familiar with America's stereotyped images of black men: criminals, sexual predators, and intellectually challenged athletes and entertainers. In Black Man Emerging, psychology professors James H. Cones III and Joseph L. White outline the evils that befall black men in modern society (drug addiction, gang violence, apathy, and limited educational and economic opportunities) and help contribute to those stereotypes. But they also detail another image of the African American male, honoring his triumph over slavery, Jim Crow, segregation, police brutality, and miseducation. While they feel that African Americans and whites can both solve America's racial problems, they write: "Black men will have to face up to their responsibility for the Black-on-Black crime and violence in the inner cities, teen pregnancies, paternal absence and family deterioration." They show how the legacy of the ancestral traditions of Africa, the survival of the Middle Passage to America, and the slave revolts created a glorious past of Afro-American male heroics that inspired leaders from Martin Luther King to Malcolm X--and can continue to inspire, along with those latter examples, today. --Eugene Holley Jr.
