A Dialogue Between Scholars

Dr. David E. Ikard and Dr. Tommy J. Curry 

"Black Male Feminism and Black Liberation"    
A Dialogue Between Scholars   

What is a Black male feminist ? How does the theory of Black male feminism inform the practice of Black liberation ? How do Black men perform masculinity ? Is is wrapped in the way in which they understand blackness, and vice versa. Does and can Black male feminism clear the way for men to free themselves from the stranglehold of traditional masculinity ? Does it ignite a path to a more concise Black male leadership to Black liberation ? We attempt to explore these questions this week on OUR COMMON GROUND with a dialogue between scholars, professors and authors Dr. David E. Ikard and Dr. Tommy J. Curry. 

Dr. David Ikard is a professor of African American Literature at UMiami (FL) and the author of Breaking the Silence:Toward a Black Male Feminist Criticism (LSU Press), 

Dr. Tommy J. Curry is a professor of Philosophy and critical race theorist who engages in the study of Black people at Texas A&M University. His teaching, research and writing spans various fields of philosophy, jurisprudence, Africana Studies, and Gender Studies.

They both have been guests on OUR COMMON GROUND numerous times. We welcome them back in this important discussion.
