The making and implementation of American foreign policy is a process that involves many actors, including the president, his advisers, legislators, nongovernmental organizations, and private citizens. Absent, for the most part, have been African Americans. During recent decades, however, some progress has been made in including them. A major purpose of this article is to determine the extent to which African American males have been and are involved in the foreign affairs arena, including the military. Likewise, it will seek to determine the impact that foreign policy has had and continues to have on African American males and the extent to which their involvement in the military can be considered a curse or blessing.
