"No More Invisible Man" (Temple University Press) provides a rare intersectional analysis of the ways that gender, race, and class collectively impact black professional men's work in white male-dominated occupations. Building on Kanter's influential theory of tokenism and drawing from interviews from nearly fifty black professional men, this book takes a new approach by considering middle class black men and the challenges, obstacles, and opportunities they encounter in the professional workplace.
