Dr. Brown studies the construction and operation of
gender and identity by examining the contemporary socio-cultural
practices of Black males. His current work explores how the cultural
needs of Black student-athletes are being met through their
relationship with white coaches. He is also working on his first book
tentatively titled Baller Culture: The Traditions and Brilliance of
African American Male Athletes.
Dr. Brown teaches a range of topics that examine the
culture and existence of Africana people. His courses include: Race and
sports, The Black male experience, Surveying African American culture,
and African-American rhetoric and communication.
