MASCULINITY IN THE AFRICAN DIASPORA

Abstract

Author(s): Paul Obiyo Mbanaso NJEMANZE

Masculinity in the African Diaspora, as an area of academic study, has generated a lot of controversy. Critical to the debate is the correct picture of the impact of slavery and discrimination in post-emancipation period on the personality of an African male. On one side of the divide, are scholars who have tended to portray a picture of total emasculation of the African male. On the other side, are writers who have not seen any negative impact on the manhood of the African whatsoever. Adopting holistic approach, this paper argues that it is neither there nor here. Rather, what transpired in the African Diaspora should be seen by standing astride the Atlantic ocean, looking at manhood in Africa and manhood in the Diaspora. A more than cursory look at the phenomenon indicates the emergence of a manhood continuum, showing both resilience and vulnerability.
