This book offers a corrective to pathological and stereotypical representations of mixedness generally, and Black mixed-race men specifically. By introducing the concept of 'post-racial' resilience the book shows that Black mixed-race men are active and agentic as they resist the fragmentation and erasure of multiplicitous identities.

Conclusion. A Critical (Mixed) Race Theory of 'Post-Racial' Resilience (PRR).
Offering a corrective to pervasive pathological myths that surround understandings of the lives of Black mixed-race men, Joseph-Salisbury argues that through the ceaseless process of hybridization, and the utilization of various forms of cultural capital, Black mixed-race men develop the post-racial resilience necessary to withstand threats of identity erasure. Among his topics are constituting and performing Black mixed-race masculinities: hybridizing the exotic, the Black monster, and the light-skin softie; racial symbolism and the stylization of identities: dress, speech, hair, and music; and friendships, peer groups, and Black regulatory ideals.
