University of Minnesota Press

The fourth chapter presents the harsh realities that young Black men face in the gendered social hierarchy that presents a very limited set of, often problematic, solutions as models. Situated within a society that advances violent expressions of masculine behaviour, the stories of Black male youths explore the consequences of when Black males reject these notions of masculinity.
