(p.1) Introduction
Black Manhood and Community Building in North Carolina, 1900–1930

Angela Hornsby-Gutting

University Press of Florida

This introductory chapter sets out the purpose of the book, which is to show how North Carolina's black men and women were equally engaged in community-based activism during the Jim Crow era. Central to this investigation is an examination of men's appropriation of communal spaces — generally labeled public and private — to promote gendered agency, cooperation, and, at times, sexual dominance. The factors influencing the development of African-American gender identity are then discussed. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   African American men, black men, disenfranchisement, Jim Crow era, communal spaces, gender identity
