I Am A Man: Black Masculinity in America

“Increasingly what we’re seeing today, in movies and in the news, which is a major discriminator of the dominant ideology, you’re seeing the black male as rapist, as drug abuser, as murderer. Basically, as a major threat to white suburban life.” –Gail Dines, Ph.D

This award-winning documentary links everyday black men from various socioeconomic backgrounds with some of Black America’s most progressive academics, social critics and authors to provide an engaging, candid dialogue on black masculine identity in American culture. Featuring interviews with bell hooks, Michael Eric Dyson, John Henrick Clarke, Dr. Alvin Poussaint, MC Hammer, and others. (Excerpt from main website)
