Unmasking- A Dialogue for Black Men
What are you doing for self-care? How are your sleep patterns, exercise, eating, relating, intimacy, connection, spiritual practices?
There is a "mask" that Black men wear in the world to be safe in public spaces. It does not cry. It does not get mad. It does not feel pain. It does not get hurt. It does not have the right to exert authority or control. It is the Mask of Respectability. Walking into public spaces without it can get them killed. The anxiety in their hearts can get them killed. Their fight or flight response when threatened can get them killed. Exertion of their very right to life and autonomy can get them killed. During this Living Room Conversation, Black men can remove their masks to speak freely and authentically about their own experiences.
