"When women get together and talk about men, the news is almost always bad news," writes bell hooks. "If the topic gets specific and the focus is on black men, the news is even worse." In this powerful new book, bell hooks arrests our attention from the first page. Her title--We Real Cool; her subject--the way in which both white society and weak black leaders are failing black men and youth. Her subject is taboo: "this is a culture that does not love black males:" "they are not loved by white men, white women, black women, girls or boys. And especially, black men do not love themselves. How could they? How could they be expected to love, surrounded by so much envy, desire, and hate?"

Coffin Ed Johnson and Grave Digger Jones get personally involved in a gang dispute in The Real Cool Killers, one of the most provocative cases in Chester Himes’s groundbreaking Harlem Detectives series. Many people had reasons for killing Ulysses Galen, a big Greek with too much money and too great a liking for young black girls. But there are complications—like Sonny, found standing over the body, high on hash, with a gun in his hand that fires only blanks; a gang called the Moslems; a disappearing suspect; and the fact that Coffin Ed’s daughter is up to her pretty little neck in the whole explosive business.

Will we ever eradicate racial prejudice? Scholars have offered a variety of formulae even while most disagree as to even what race is! From Anthropology to bioscience, even DNA research suggests human beings designed racial difference, color variance, and class distinctions for specific reasons. "We Real Cool" explores evolving aesthetic perceptions how beauty has symbolized power throughout the ages, the ways it has been used in images, politics, and commerce. How racial difference is used to typify beauty in media, in advertising, in American culture explains how diverse groups influence the public from celebrities to politicians. This book looks at what Black American women have done to change their images dating back to the nineteenth century, and why it worked. "This is a richly textured study that explores the dynamics of black aesthetics by broaching ... such widely varied texts as hairstyles and folk beliefs." Tabitha Kanogo, author, "African Womanhood in Colonial Kenya" "We Real Cool" is an important study of how African Americans... generated a culture that was... not simply a reflection of whiteness." Leon Litwack, Pulitzer-Prize winning author
