We Real Cool: Black Men and Masculinity (17/18)

Every black man, every man in America should read We Real Cool: Black Men and Masculinity by bell hooks.

In this seminal work, hooks confronts toxic, hegemonic masculinity and sexist male identity. Hooks says this indoctrination begins in infancy and is a direct result of a white supremacist, capitalist patriarchy that consumes men regardless of race, socioeconomic background and whether or not they reject of all forms of misogyny. ‘We Real Cool’ is a holistic analysis and insight into the male psyche – a lesson for all who strive to be better, more interconnected and social aware men.
