Source: Howard Journal Of Communications, Volume 18, Number 1, January 2007 , pp. 69-86(18)
Abstract:This article considers the following question: What are the specific dialectical tensions that Black men encounter in oppressive organizational structures? In order to address this question, the authors conducted a textual analysis of three texts that explain, with great depth and clarity, the dialectical tensions experienced by Black men in organizational structures. Based on the analysis, the authors suggest that classic and contemporary literary works inform a collective critical memory base of distinct communicative experiences for non-dominant group members.
