Can Black Mothers Raise Our Sons?
Can mothers teach their sons how to become men? In recent years that question has been discussed and debated on Black radio, in Black magazines, workshops and conference, and Black households across this nation. Yet, there is little research to inform those who participate in this argumentative discourse. Towards this end, this book examines how Black mothers participate in raising their sons to become Black men. An analysis of the historical, sociological, and biological variables that influence the construct of Black male sex roles is provided. Every parent, guardian, teacher, social worker, coach, spiritual leader, and psychologist must understand the dynamics and potential impact of these variables so that we may effectively raise Black males in the twenty-first century.
