Abstract:

African American men face many socio-cultural, academic, and negative dilemmas that generate stress experiences and identity conflicts that are specific to them as a group. These dilemmas include denigrations to their manhood, e.g., physical beatings, castration, police brutality, lynching, educational tracking, and high rates of prison incarceration. Unfortunately, the outcomes of these denigrations have been the creation of stressors that have prevented African American men from expressing their full potential as men and human beings. These stressors, in turn, may lead to psychological pressures that negatively affect their health. The purpose of this presentation will be to explore the impact that positive racial identity development may have on the health outcomes of African American males to help them live longer and healthier lives.
