The Masculinity Project :What does it mean to be a black man in America today?

The Masculinity Project addresses the critical topic of masculinity in the African American community by exploring how men are represented and perceived, investigating the obstacles they encounter, and exploring the influences on the community at large, through the creation of an interactive community of content including videos, blogs, and forums.

To get more info on what the project is all about and to see more video you can check out the website.

Also if you missed the series the Washington Post did a while back on Being a Black Man... check that out HERE.

What does it mean?

Society treats you as a menace.

It means embracing a society that does not always embrace your person.
