Abstract: Many Black males (young and old) have become apathetic about their options and future potential--something not often understood by those who don't share their experience, limited options, and social pressure to perform. Yet despite the opposition from society and the limited options for success, many Black men, by any means necessary, have gone to detrimental extremes to demonstrate a desirable masculinity that will bring about status, wealth, respect, and the affections and loyalty of their women. Gender, for Black men, has become a life or death issue, as many of our youth are drug-dealing and in gangs, many of our adults are incarcerated or are lifelong sexual play-boys, and many of our elders are dying too early from stress and health issues all due to one thing: trying live up to an unrealistic standard of "manhood" historically excluded from Black men, even in the contemporary world.

As a result, many Black males who've long tired of these confining definitions by others, now find ourselves on the precipice of change, for those who dare consider it. Should we abandon our definitions of manhood and create a new one? Will our families and communities support such an endeavor? Will society's educational, law enforcement, and employment institutions be willing to accept it? These are some of the challenging questions that many Black men are struggling to answer. The answers can't be explored, however, until Black men first learn to articulate their own experiences, in their voices, and with a new gender vocabulary.

"DIY Masculinity: Masculine Identity in DIY Punk Subculture" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Montreal Convention Center, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Aug 11, 2006 Online <PDF>. 2018-10-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p104877_index.html>

Abstract: Previous studies of masculinity have shown the problematic nature of men's negotiation of their identities in relation to hegemonic masculinity. In the DIY punk subculture, members actively resist hegemony by creating a countercultural space for the articulation of art, music and activism. In examining the question of how men negotiate their identities around the hegemonic ideal, I conducted ten in-depth interviews with men involved with the DIY punk subculture in Long Island, New York. While the men all had different experiences, they all found the DIY punk scene to be a place where they could collectively articulate alternative forms of masculinity and gender performance. The main problem facing these men is the struggle to continue to articulate alternative masculinities outside of the subcultural space in their dealings with everyday life in mainstream society, especially in the workplace.

"Masculinities, Sexualities, and Drug Use – Masculinity Projects and Persistence in Criminal Careers" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASC Annual Meeting, Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2018-10-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p666786_index.html>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: In this study, we explore the intersections and dynamics of masculinity, age, sexuality, and drug use. We do this informed by a life course perspective, and show how the above dimensions intersect and can contribute to persistence in crime. Our empirical material is based on a small number of rich life history interviews with male offenders conducted within the Stockholm Life Course Project. Through the analysis of these life histories, an analytical point develops as central. It is twofold. First, to a large extent, male offenders do masculinity through their sexuality, and this practice is facilitated, enhanced, and intensified through the use of certain drugs, metamphetamine in particular. Over time, this has significant meanings for persistence in crime and recidivism beyond the transition to adulthood. Second, this practice is age-graded: over time, the drug use changes its meaning. The negative effects of the drug become apparent to the offenders in a way they did not do before.

"Improvising Masculinity: African American Fraternities in the construction of a Black masculinity" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Atlanta Hilton Hotel, Atlanta, GA, Aug 16, 2003 Online <.PDF>. 2018-10-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p106600_index.html>

Abstract: Begun as an exploration of the meaning and function of fraternity membership in the lives of African American men on a predominantly white campus, the interview data revealed the important role the fraternity played in the construction of a unique masculine identity. This identity is connected both to Connell’s (1997) model of hegemonic masculinity and to the model of Afrocentric socialization found in Akbar (1990) and Oliver (1989), among others. It is clear that the content of this identity forms a sort of amalgamation masculinity described by Gates (1997), which incorporates the sometimes contradictory social locations (race, class, and gender) of the fraternity members.
