Visiting Washington, D.C.
Session Type: Symposium
In this symposium, women scholar educator activists present critical and creative essays that regard Blackness and maleness lovingly and respectfully. In their responsive essays, the authors each forefront and confront an issue intimated by stories presented in recent media landscapes: that Black boys and men embody threat and instigate violent state sanctioned mediation and murder (R); that Black boys and men are apathetic, unintelligent, lazy and cannot generate feasible solutions to social ills that plague marginalized communities (K); that Black boys and men are not reliable as community leaders, lacking drive, resources, and be seen as trustworthy, capable visionaries (L); that Black boys and men are socially and academically inept, economic derelicts, emotionally violent and morally bankrupt or uneducable (J).
