Synopsis

Black Males and Racism shows that behind the 21st century curtain of 'post-racial' public sentiment lies an ongoing reality shared by many African American males - racism continues to thrive and often drastically affects their lives. Using empirical data and the methods of sociological research, based on extensive interviews of black males, Fitzgerald analyses how the persistent effects of white supremacy in education often last well into the adulthood of her subjects. Revealing the mechanisms of institutional social control, Fitzgerald out proposes to reduce structural racism and improve the lives of African American youth.
