dc.description.abstractThis study explored the messages African American men, between the ages of 18 and 30, and 55 and older; receive about race, masculinity and coping. Qualitative interviews and post-interview phone calls were utilized. Data collection and analysis were in the grounded theory tradition. The results found nine major categories: Get Your Education, Keep Strong, Getting Ahead, Be Seen and Heard, Media's Influence on Identity, Let Go and Let God, Don't Forget Who You Are, Don't Forget Where You Come From and Getting It Off My Chest. These categories were found to result in an overarching theme of I am Visible and Viable, which was both the message received and the message participants wanted conveyed. Implications and limitations are discussed.
