  • The International Dimensions of Everyday Black Political Participation
    • Abstract: Abstract The extent to which everyday African American political participation operates across US borders is rarely examined. This article explores this phenomenon by asking if there is a relationship between the characteristics of black social movements outside the USA and how African American institutions encourage their constituencies inside the USA to participate politically. Through background research, the authors developed hypotheses about how independent variables relating to the ideology, tactics, and membership of the African independence movement relate to the dependent variable, participation encouragement, by African American institutions. In order to operationalize these measures, data were gathered through the African American Press Internationalism Study—a content analysis of 451 articles and editorials about the African independence movement that appeared in African American newspapers between 1957 and 1971.

  • Learners of Mathematics: High School Students' Perspectives of Culturally
           Relevant Mathematics Pedagogy
    • Abstract: Abstract Culturally relevant pedagogy (CRP) has been suggested by researchers as one method for improving mathematics education among African-American students, but very little research take into account the students' perspectives of CRP. This case study examines students' perspectives of CRP and the effect that participating in culturally relevant mathematics instruction has on students' attitude and interest toward mathematics. Five students that participated in a culturally relevant mathematics intervention were interviewed. African-American students in the study held positive views of CRP and preferred the method over traditional mathematics instruction. There were six themes developed from the results of the interviews: (1) home-like classrooms; (2) ethic of caring; (3) participation opportunities; (4) technology use; (5) confidence; and (6) motivation. In addition, all students that participated in the study experienced an improved attitude and/or interest toward mathematics.

  • AARMS: The African American Relationships and Marriage Strengthening
           Curriculum for African American Relationships Courses and Programs
    • Abstract: Abstract African American Relationships and Marriage Strengthening (AARMS), a curriculum that consists of 10 core areas, was developed to be used for relationships, premarital, and marriage education courses and programs. This paper provides an overview of the rationale for each component of the AARMS curriculum, with the specific goal of providing a framework and strategies for developing an African American relationships course that can be taught at the university or college level or for relationship, premarital, or marriage education for community and faith-based organizations.

  • Comorbid Mood and Anxiety Disorders, Suicidal Behavior, and Substance
           Abuse Among Black Caribbeans in the U.S.A.
    • Abstract: Abstract The purpose of this study was to examine nativity and country of origin differences in comorbid mood (major depressive disorder, dysthymia, and bipolar I and II disorders) and anxiety (post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, agoraphobia, social phobia, generalized anxiety disorder, and obsessive compulsive disorder) disorders among Black Caribbeans in the U.S.A. The paper also examines the relationship between comorbid psychiatric disorders and substance abuse disorders and suicidal behavior. Data are taken from the Black Caribbean sub-sample (N = 1,621) of the National Survey of American Life. Multinomial logistic regression and logistic regression analysis are used and odd ratios, relative risk ratios, and 95 % confidence intervals are presented. Seven percent (7.19 %) of respondents had comorbid mood and anxiety disorders, 8.66 % had a mood disorder only, and 11.46 % had an anxiety disorder only. First-generation Black Caribbeans were less likely than US-born respondents to have a lifetime mood or anxiety disorder and also less likely to have a lifetime substance disorder or a lifetime suicidal attempt. Black Caribbean men were more likely than Black Caribbean women to: (1) have anxiety disorders only versus neither mood or anxiety disorders, (2) to have a substance disorder, and (3) to have had a suicidal attempt. Lastly, Black Caribbeans with both mood and anxiety disorders have significantly higher rates of mental health services utilization. These and other findings are discussed in detail.

  • Framing MOVE: A Press’ Complicity in the Murder of Women and
           Children in the City of (Un) Brotherly Love
    • Abstract: Abstract This article examines local press coverage of the 1985 police bombing of MOVE, which resulted in the deaths of eleven people, as well as the destruction of two city blocks leaving 250 people homeless. According to public opinion polls many Philadelphians seemingly showed little concern about the heavy-handed tactics used by the police; in fact, many praised the mayor and the efforts of law enforcement. News accounts from the Philadelphia Inquirer were content analyzed to determine whether or not the coverage was framed in a manner that may have influenced the public’s attitude toward the organization and its members, thus cultivating within the populace an attitude of indifference.

  • “I’m a Black Man and I’m Doing this Job Very
           Well”: How African American Professional Men Negotiate the Impact of
           Racism on Their Career Development
    • Abstract: Abstract This is a critical qualitative study grounded in the tripartite frame of Black masculinity, critical race theory, and career development theory. The study examines the impact of racism on the career development of African American professional men in corporate America. Fourteen African American men who hold mid-management or higher positions in their respective companies were interviewed for this study. Participants’ responses were analyzed using the constant comparative method. Findings reveal that African American professional men experience repressive structures due to gendered racism, which impacts their careers in ways that are different from their White male counterparts and African American professional women. The study also identifies facilitative structures African American men employ to negotiate the impact of racism on their career development. Four conclusions are discussed, and implications for practice and future research are offered.

  • Weight Perceptions and Desired Body Size in a National Sample of
           African-American Men and Women with Diabetes
    • Abstract: Abstract Historically, African-American men and women have had higher rates of overweight and obesity when compared with other racial and ethnicity groups. It has been hypothesized that the acceptance of larger body sizes may be due, in part, to a possible prevailing cultural notion within the African-American community that being “skinny” is associated with being unhealthy or malnourished. This acceptance of larger body sizes among African-American men and women may be a manifestation of African-American cultural norms. This exploratory analysis sought to probe self-perceptions of weight and desired body size among a socioeconomically diverse, national sample of African-American men and women diagnosed with diabetes. Results showed that the majority of men and women whose BMI placed them in the obese category, indicated that they would like to weigh less. However, close to half of those men and women whose BMI placed them in the overweight category, stated that they would like to maintain their same weight.

  • A Brief Review of Sleep Normality and Pathology among Adult Black Men
    • Abstract: Abstract Healthcare disparities are a growing area of interest among scientists and clinicians. Articles identified from searches of the PubMed and PsycInfo databases, as well as the Google Scholar search engine including combinations of the key words and phrases: Black men, circadian rhythm, disease, ethnicity, gender, health disparities, illness, insomnia, race, sleep, sleep apnea, and sleep disorders were used for this review. This brief review addresses some of the limited work on sleep among Black men. Some information is available regarding expected sleep parameters, insomnia, sleep-disordered breathing, and sleep disturbances related to general medical conditions. Many areas are still in need of exploration and, although emphasizing aspects of sleep, the present work is intended as a foundation to encourage further exploration across many disciplines in the health sciences.

  • Racism and Police Brutality in America
    • Abstract: Abstract What, if any, changes have occurred in the nation’s police departments 21 years after the Rodney King beating? To answer this question, this study examined findings provided by the National Police Misconduct Statistics and Reporting Project (NPMSRP). An additional goal of this study was to examine how the public generally perceive police and how race and racism shape this discourse. To answer this secondary question, we examined narratives provided by 36 contributors to the NPMSRP site. The following two questions were foundational to this study: (1) What do findings from the NPMSRP suggest about the rate of police brutality in America? (2) How do individuals perceive the police department, and what implications do these perceptions hold for Black men in America? In general, fatalities at the hands of police are higher than they are for the general public. Grounded theory analysis of the data revealed that individuals perceive members of law enforcement in the following ways: (a) contempt for law enforcement, (b) suspicion of law enforcement, (c) law enforcement as agents of brutality, and (d) respect for law enforcement. Supporting qualitative data are presented in connection with each of the aforementioned themes.

  • Black Male Disproportionality in the Criminal Justice Systems of the USA,
           Canada, and England: a Comparative Analysis of Incarceration
    • Abstract: Abstract The USA, Canada, and England are remarkably similar in that black men are disproportionately represented in their respective criminal justice systems. While this topic generates considerable research interest in the respective countries, there has been no comparative analysis of the systems specific to black male disproportionality in incarceration. Using critical race theory as a conceptual framework, this paper is such an analysis. One important finding of the analysis is that the convergent antecedents to the disproportionality are war on drug policies and accompanying law enforcement actions that disproportionately target young black men from economically disadvantaged urban communities.

  • Scribblin’ Sinnin’ Sh*t: Narratives of Rape as Masculine
           Therapeutic Performance in the Strange Case For and Against Tyler, The
           Creator
    • Abstract: Abstract The presence of rape narratives in the recorded work of rap artist Tyler, The Creator, offers compelling terrain to explore how the apparent post-feminist cultural landscape has given rise to masculine anxieties and the ways in which they are articulated in rap music. Via a feminist-informed content and film analysis, this article examines the instances of rape narratives in the audio and visual work of Tyler, The Creator, and suggests these texts might be understood as symptomatic of feelings of resentment towards women in an era of improved gender equity. This article further argues that such sexually hostile texts function as a ‘therapeutic’ and performative strategy to allay these anxieties whilst simultaneously revealing the patriarchal structures upon which Tyler, The Creator’s particularly vulnerable, deviant masculine subjectivity is premised.

  • Gender, Race, and Homicide: Precarious Gesture and Bringing the
           Generalized Other Back In
    • Abstract: Abstract Work on homicide has increasingly moved to cultural analysis that reframes basic sociological concepts like structure and value. In addition, symbolic interactionist work has increasingly focused on cultural structures. This study contributes to both efforts, framing homicide as variation in performances for group boundary production, that is, for the social distribution of prestige. Does gender and race identity represent different ways of performing homicide? The study uses Supplementary Homicide Reports, 2009 of the Unified Crime Reports data that the US Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation prepares. The study examines four direct effects of boundary production, namely black male, black female, white male, and white female statuses. It includes five performance regularities, gender and race, age, relationship to victim, condition of the homicide, and weapon used. The cross-classified analyses show cultural boundaries that associate with gender and race statuses. The study tests urban and southern residences of homicidal offenders using enter hierarchical logistic regressions and finds support for the hypothesis that cultural performances produce boundaries for geo-economic and geo-historical identifications.

  • Baldwin's Quest for ‘Panacea’: A Case Study
    • Abstract: Abstract Literature mirrors the ongoing social and cultural trends. Textual discourse gives space to internal and external upheavals that shape the human civilization. An author who interprets reality in terms of existing conceptions turns to his artistic sensibilities to decipher the true, deeper and even metaphysical meaning of his perceptions. Hence, a text turns into an endeavour to search the significance of various life experiences in relation to existing social, political, cultural and moral notions of a society. The present paper takes up an African American author James Baldwin to explore how a literary artist turns into a rebel or reformer in his quest for remedial measures for social and cultural maladies. In his attempt to unravel the intricacies of the institutionalized setup of human society, Baldwin navigates the whole range of the socio-cultural panorama to find a solution for human predicament. Baldwin's search was initiated with his traditional approach to religion in his first novel Go Tell It on the Mountain and gradually becomes more and more radical with the advancement of time. A close perusal of his novels, chronically arranged as per the year of their publication, evinces the gradually transforming approach of the writer with an increasing element of experimentation. An individual's search of happiness instigates him to discover all its possible sources. Having existed in terms of gender and racial prejudices of a group, Baldwin examines the potentiality of the black church, interracial relationships, the value of strong family values, hedonistic approach of a bohemian culture and, furthermore, the spiritual element in homosexual love.

  • “The Colored Man Can’t Fix Nothing with the Law”:
           Carceral Spaces in August Wilson’s        class="a-plus-plus">The Piano Lesson
    • Abstract: Abstract August Wilson’s “Pittsburgh Cycle,” a play written for each decade of the twentieth century, reveals an ongoing engagement with the nature of race, crime, and punishment. Almost none of the male characters in Wilson’s cycle is imprisoned during the course of the play in which he appears, yet most share the experience of imprisonment, and thus carceral places occupy an important rhetorical space in his dramaturgy. Specifically, in The Piano Lesson, Wilson casts prison as metaphor and metonym of modern-day bondage, historicizing social forms of control that have circumscribed the social, civil, and legal rights of the African American community.

  • Utility of the Beck Anxiety Inventory Among Ghanaians: a Preliminary Study
    • Abstract: Abstract The Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI) is a well-known clinical tool for screening anxiety. A number of researches has indicated its utility in a wide range of client groups including adolescents and people with intellectual disability. Its use among predominantly black population in a non-western world, however, is not well-documented. The study set out to examine its psychometric properties among undergraduate students in Ghana. There were 133 participants consisting of 86 males and 47 females with a mean age of 23.83 years (SD = 3.21) who volunteered. The results showed that the full scale mean score was 17.65 (SD = 12.72) with no significant difference between the males and females (t (131) = .05, p > .05, two-tailed). The Cronbach coefficient alpha was .93. The four-factor structure was not supported, instead a three-factor structure consisting of autonomic, somatic, and fear/panic elements was revealed. The correlations between the factors were moderate ranging from .51 to .65. In general, the BAI may be potentially useful as a research tool in Ghana. A number of limitations have been pointed out and future work is required to establish its research and clinical utility in Ghana.

  • Authentic Engagement: Practice with African American Males
    • Abstract: Abstract This article describes the influence of environment as it relates to the plight of African American males in American society. Person in the environment (PIE) is a theoretical construct used to explain the relationship between one’s environment and life experience. This paper uses PIE as the overarching framework for outlining a strategy for human service practice with the African American male. The authors contend that African American males are particularly challenged as they face institutionalized racism and lack of awareness from practitioners whose task is to assist yet lack the understanding to intervene in an effective manner. Additionally, the authors discuss what is referred to as authentic engagement and propose it as a method useful for all human service practitioners in working with African American males. This article challenges those who work with African American males to broaden their understanding and increase practice effectiveness through the process of authentic engagement.

  • Climate Justice, Hurricane Katrina, and African American Environmentalism
    • Abstract: Abstract The images of human suffering from New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina remain seared in our nation's collective memory. More than 8 years on, the city and its African-American population still have not recovered fully. This reality highlights an important truth: the disturbances that accompany climate change will first and foremost affect minority communities, many of whom are economically disadvantaged. This paper: (1) describes how Hurricane Katrina, an example of the type of natural disaster that will become more prevalent with intensifying climate change, has impacted the black community of New Orleans; (2) explores the notion that African Americans, in the midst of racial oppression, have developed a unique and powerful brand of environmental thought that has much to contribute to mainstream environmentalism; and (3) argues that the voice of the black community, which has a vested interest in climate outcomes, is critically needed in today's climate debate.
