On Being an Angry Black Man

Stephen John Quaye

Abstract


Black men are often seen as problems, threats, and thugs. The mere existence of a Black body is often met with fear. Using autoethnographic mystory, I blend personal stories, poetry, song lyrics, and analysis to subvert the angry Black man mantra and explore the productive use of anger to stimulate change. 


Keywords


Black, race, anger, autoethnography, mystory
