A Softer Side: Re-Considering Black Masculinity

When We Forge A New Path Where Tenderness Is Valued, Love Is Essential, And Our Friendships Are Deep And Meaningful, Society Will Be Forced To Recognize The Importance Of A More Inclusive And Positive Representation Of Black Masculinity." Shaka Senghor

Society Has Long Held A Warped Definition Of Black Masculinity, Forcing Black Men Into A Never-Ending Cycle Of Excessive Toughness And Limited Vulnerability. These Perceptions Significantly Impact Black Men's Relationships With Their Children, Their Partners, The World, And Themselves. This Conversation Will Feature Black Men Showing Authentic, Vulnerable, And Non-Conforming Masculine Behavior That Brings This Complexity Into Focus.

The Event Kicks Off With A Reception In The Winter Garden From 5:30-6:00 Pm.

This Is A Perfect Opportunity For Our Guests To Connect With Each Other And Our Presenters, Fostering A Sense Of Community And Engagement. Guests Are Also Invited To Explore Raphael Barontini’s Exhibit During This Time.
