Overview

The statistics are disheartening, and continue to speak to the inherent disadvantages and additional challenges to be faced simply by nature of being an African American male in today's United States. Educational disparities, inequities in the juvenile and adult justice systems, and racial divides in earning ability and opportunity all compound the already difficult task of forging a positive and resilient identity as an African American man. In this important new book, Cyrus Ellis and Jon Carlson, together with their group of contributing authors, examine such key questions as: what is manhood, and how is African American manhood distinct? How can African American men develop interpersonal effectiveness and emotional resilience in the face of societal contradictions and conflicting expectations? What are effective methods to promote healthy and positive growth and personal development for African American men today? Resiliency, Achievement, and Manhood provides practitioners, counselors-in-training, and scholars with a clear understanding of the historical and social context of African American men, and presents useful and practical information to assist these men to become interpersonally adaptive and self-empowered.
