A Man: An Autoethnographic Analysis of Black Male Identity Negotiation
Waymer, Damion
Qualitative Inquiry, v14 n6 p968-989 2008
"A Man" is an original text created by the author that deals with the struggles that Black men experience when confronted by White privilege. By using autoethnographic analysis, the author critiques the language, ironies, tensions, emotions, and opportunities expressed within "A Man," then extends findings to confront the issues that Black men encounter in the way that they view and negotiate their identities. In general, findings of shared struggles among Black men provide possible interventions for legitimizing and representing Black men's lived experiences. (Contains 4 notes.)
