The hold up signs about their passions for the game, and the thrills they get from the campaign, the only words spoken are Stand Up, Speak Up.

    Reads: How well are you HUNG?

    HUNG brings a topic previously discussed only in intimate settings out into the open.

    Scott Poulson-Bryant interweaves his own experiences as a black man in America with witty analyses of how black male sexuality is expressed in books, film, television, sports, and pornography.

    Hung is a double entendre, referring not only to penis size but to the fact that black men were once literally hung from trees, often for their perceived sexual prowess and the supposed risk it posed to white women.

    Hung offers a thorough, thought-provoking look at media-created images of the “Well-Hung Black Male.” He deftly deconstructs movies like Mandingo and Shaft, articles in the popular press, and edgy works like Robert Mapplethorpe’s Black Book, while also providing distinctive profiles of icons like porn star Lexington Steele and rapper LL Cool J.

    A scintillating mixture of memoir and cultural commentary, HUNG is the first and only book to take on phallic fixation and uncover what lies below. Readers may be scandalized, but they’ll also have plenty to ponder about America’s views on how black men measure up.
