Finding tea cake: An imagined black feminist manhood

February 14, 2013 at 8:16 am

What the heck is a black male feminist?, asks Dr. Mark Anthony Neal. As part of the 2013 Center for Women’s and Gender Studies┬á “I need feminism because” theme, and as part of our campus celebration of Black History Month, Dr. Neal will discuss the relationship of black masculinity to feminist politics, on February 21 from 2 – 3 p.m. in Health Education Complex Room 2039.

Dr. Neal is Professor of African American Studies at Duke University, and author of several books, including New Black Man (2005) and the forthcoming Looking for Leroy: (Il)legible Black Masculinities (2013). He is also the host of the weekly webcast, “Left of Black.”
