Race, class, and gender interwoven throughout centuries, culminate to present representations of black masculinity. The space between dominant white masculinity and marginalized black masculinity will be explored beginning during the time of slavery in the United States to the present day. The fight for equality on the part of black men will be examined through the juxtaposition of black women throughout the battle, and the impact black male/female relations has on black masculinity will be explored. Lastly, along with a historical timeline of black masculinity, prominent scholarly and public authorities will be utilized to elucidate variations of black masculinity.
