Unmasking: A Dialogue for Black Men
July 30, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am PDT
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 will have the opportunity to remove their masks and speak freely and authentically.
“Unmasking: A Dialogue for Black Men” is a part of Media Done Responsibly’s Summer of Wellness Series: Curating Safe Spaces for Social Change. It will be co-hosted by Spiritual Counselor Jason D. Mitchell, ALSP, @consciouslens and Black Male Mentor and Cal State LA Adjunct Professor of Pan-African Studies, Amiri Mahnzili @afriking_zili
