"Fathers, Preachers, Rebels, Men" provides readers with a greater understanding of how blacks have attempted to construct agency in the face of historical stereotypes that perpetuated societal fear and anxiety toward black masculinity. It is an intellectually stimulating work that is an exemplar of thorough research and profound analysis. Timothy J. Brown, chair of the Department of Communication Studies, West Chester University of Pennsylvania"
This collection successfully complicates the standard paradigm of the Nat Turner versus Uncle Tom images of nineteenth-century and early-twentieth-century black masculinity. As the essays move forward into the twentieth century, the editors present a very fresh perspective on the crisis of New Negro masculinity and the crisis of the black family. I particularly value the skillful framing of the work as an overview of visual images, literary texts, legal cases, memoirs, and historical accounts.

Fathers, Preachers, Rebels, Men: Black Masculinity in U.S. History and Literature, 1820-1945, edited by Timothy R. Buckner and Peter Caster, brings together scholars of history and literature focused on the lives and writing of black men during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in the United States. The interdisciplinary study demonstrates the masculine character of cultural practices developed from slavery through segregation. Black masculinity embodies a set of contradictions, including an often mistaken threat of violence, the belief in its legitimacy, and the rhetorical union of truth and fiction surrounding slavery, segregation, resistance, and self-determination.
