Being Black, Being Male on Campus: Understanding and Confronting Black Male Collegiate Experiences by Derrick R. Brooms
English | December 28th, 2016 (2017 Edition) | ASIN: B01N6LEPM1, ISBN: 1438463995, 1438464002 | 266 pages | EPUB | 0.90 MB

Explores how race and gender matter on campus and how Black males navigate college for academic and personal success.

This work marks a radical shift away from the pervasive focus on the challenges that Black male students face and the deficit rhetoric that often limits perspectives about them. Instead, Derrick R. Brooms offers reflective counter-narratives of success. Being Black, Being Male on Campus uses in-depth interviews to investigate the collegiate experiences of Black male students at historically White institutions. Framed through Critical Race Theory and Blackmaleness, the study provides new analysis on the utility and importance of Black Male Initiatives (BMIs). This work explores Black men’s perceptions, identity constructions, and ambitions, while it speaks meaningfully to how race and gender intersect as they influence students’ experiences.

Derrick R. Brooms is Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Louisville.
