Call Me Mister

If you look at the most popular films of the last eighty years, you can see a changing image of the American male.  Ashton Trice (James Madison University) says men were often portrayed as heroes until the end of World War II, after which they were shown as struggling or even helpless.

Also: Dean Deneese Jones (Longwood University) talks about Call Me MISTER, a program designed to recruit more African-American men to teach elementary school.
