Speak My Name does for black men what Terry McMillan's Waiting to Exhale and the Delaney sisters' priceless Having Our Say have done for black women. James Earl Hardy, The Advocate. A rich and varied menu of the concerns, fears, aspirations, and tragedies that pervade the psyche of the black male writer. This is one of the first anthologies focusing on Black masculinities.

Black men are this nation's outlaw celebrities. I know that black men commit a disproportionate number of America's crimes. It doesn't matter what other modifiers also describe our individual essences-mechanic, police officer, left-handed, Virginian, kind, gangbanger, tall-"black man" overrides them all and makes us all, equally, desperadoes. In fact, I need to know that, since murder at the hands of another black man is the leading cause of death in my age group.

Read it. Weep. Then do something worthy of us all.

This is one of the first anthologies focusing on Black masculinities. Books like "Black Men on Race, Gender, and Sexuality" or "Black Men in Their Own Words" owe credit to it. The authors are diverse in terms of age, academic affiliation, sexual orientation, and citizenship. My favorite chapter is the dialogue between Essex Hemphill and Isaac Julien. Some have complained that men's studies texts are Eurocentric or unfairly assume that men face no oppressions. Powerful books like Belton's challenge those fallacies. There is a chance that some may feel the book is dated now. However, at its publication, it was revolutionary and much-needed. I highly recommend it.
