From the onset of chattel slavery in the western hemisphere,males of African descent have been constantly under duress.They have endured being corralled, arrested, accosted,tortured, studied, worked to death, feared, sexually fetishized,bred, villainized, hyper-athleticized, and scapegoated to say the least. Yet, despite such harsh treatment, and the systemicexploitation they have suffered in every society that has beenredeveloped in the western tradition, they have stilldeveloped ways to survive, sustain, and even thrive.Sometimes, contradictory, at other times subtle, and yetstill, in your face, Black men have created opportunities tospeak out and articulate hard truths to those that woulddismiss their experiences. In this course, we will study the history of Black men, Blackmanhood, and representations of Black men in media over the last fifty years. We willexplore Black men’s relationships with the Black women, the State, and even to otherBlack men, while also exploring the complex space of negotiating interracial relationshipsin America, nationalism, and the “Obama Effect,” or color-blindness in today’s society.
