Summary

Black Men Worshippinganalyzes the discursive spaces where Black masculinity is constructed, performed, and contested in American religion and culture. It judiciously considers the anxiety that emerges from Black male negotiations with these constructions, placing fictive literary and film narratives in conversation with the non-fictive narratives of controversial and popular religious personalities such as Donnie McClurkin and T.D. Jakes.
