Wright, Cecile; Weekes, Debbie; McGlaughlin, Alex; Webb, David
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v19 n1 p75-87 Mar 1998
Argues that black masculinities are not expressed in isolation but are shaped by school processes. Reveals that the young black males' relationship with teachers and peers (1) gives them a less positive perception of their masculinity; and (2) without discussion, acts to pathologize their identities causing them to feel responsible for their position.
