"I tell Black men's hidden stories, and separate them from the stories others impose on them." - Dr. T. Hasan Johnson Created by Dr. T. Hasan Johnson of CSU Fresno's Africana Studies Program, the concept of Black Masculinism highlights the need and value of progressive Black Masculinities in the Black community. Although they are all around us, many overlook progressive Black men and focus only on problematic expressions of Black masculinity. This site is a mixture of reflections, current events, popular culture observations, and meditations on progressive Black masculinities. Also, every spring, students in my Fresno State course AFRS 130T: The Black Male Experience post their Black Elder Projects, exhibiting a wide variety of examples of the myriad ways that Black men exemplify progressive masculinities that often go unrecognized in relation to their representations in popular media. This site was created in order to help people imagine Black masculinities in a less restrictive, more humane fashion.
