Abstract: This essay confines to the burgeoning and exercising of power of African-American within the African-American tradition. It also tracks down the negative, undesirable and traumatic effect of masculinity within family and community relations. Two principal reasons that white and black men manipulate to inhibit women from social and familial movements within the traditional culture are to be nominated negatively as "black" and "woman". Women should struggle against enslavement with the masculine world and go on their quest for subjectivity by revising the terms of love, autonomy and liberty. So the present study deals with the black women's experiences as both oppressed and marginalized groups due to the masculine functionality. In order to be successful the black woman should resist all kinds of oppressions as beating and abusing and even the controlling negative stereotypes like “mule” and “jezebel.” Hence masculine prejudices and violence against black women and the response to the injustices based on the nature of resistance through womanist point of view are surveyed to show that masculinity is also related to women.
