Introduction: Mapping the Contours of Progressive Masculinities
Published as the introduction to Progessive Black Masculinities, Athena D. Mutua, ed.
This is the introductory chapter from the edited collection entitled Progressive Black Masculinities. The Introduction explains the origins of the project and the organizers attempts to bring a group of scholars and activist together to explore the experiences, practices and lives of black men from a gender perspective. Seeking to fill a gap in feminists theory, among others, the chapter poses questions to scholar/activists from various perspectives about whether racial profiling constitutes sexism and whether there exist a vision of manhood that does not rely on female subordination.
