Although I am highlighting only black male bodies and black masculinity, scientific discourses on race and gender intersected, reinforcing each other in such a way that femininity and women’s bodies, both white and nonwhite, are necessarily implicated in any theory about black masculinity that emerged at the time. This intersection was not always deliberate or apparent since discourses on race and gender were at times written and read as separate literatures. 2 Perhaps the first book to result from the dissection of African bodies of both sexes was written by a German anatomist who had received black bodies from a colony of Africans established near Frankfort in the 1780s.
