This is the introductory chapter from the edited collection entitled Progressive Black Masculinities. The Introduction explains the origins of the project and the organizers attempts to bring a group of scholars and activist together to explore the experiences, practices and lives of black men from a gender perspective. Seeking to fill a gap in feminists theory, among others, the chapter poses questions to scholar/activists from various perspectives about whether racial profiling constitutes sexism and whether there exist a vision of manhood that does not rely on female subordination.
