The Context of White Supremacy welcomes the return of Dr. Tommy Curry. An associate professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Texas A&M, Dr. Curry’s research interests include philosophy, jurisprudence, Africana Studies, and Gender Studies. His primary area of focus is Critical Race Theory and Africana Philosophy. We’re excited to discuss Dr. Curry’s fresh new publication, The Man-Not: Race, Class, Genre, and the Dilemmas of Black Manhood. The text investigates how the suffering of black males is ignored and minimized. Dr. Curry writes that contrary to claims that too much attention is given to plight of black males – at the expense of Black females, centuries of sexual violence, economic exploitation, and incarceration that is poorly understood and buried. Deviating from popular concepts, The Man-Not posits that the System of White Supremacy denies Black males the opportunity to engage in patriarchy. As such, popular models that insist black males are in cahoots with White men to oppress all women, fail to recognize the infinite ways white women and men neutralize black agency in all area of people activity.
