Black Boys Making Sense of Race

Black Boys Making Sense of Race

(p.204) Epilogue Black Boys Making Sense of Race
When We Imagine Grace

Simone C. Drake

University of Chicago Press

The epilogue ends in an unconventional manner, as the author ruminates on journal entries she recorded about her sons thinking about what it means to be black. As she offers these brief glimpses into the minds of young black boys as they attempt to make sense of race, she thinks about her and her husband’s steadfast efforts to protect their sons from the realities of blackmaleness.
