Event description: 

Join us for a screening and panel discussion regarding the 2014 documentary created by Shikeith. The project gained inspiration from events, that challenge the notion that we are living in a so-called “post-racial society” and tackles the still-taboo subject of emotional health amongst black men.

In the documentary, nine black men talk openly – many of them perhaps for the first time in their lives – about their true feelings, fears, and anxieties. They respond to questions such as, Do you cry? Or When did you become a Black man? Examining how the pressures of trying to live up to the acceptable image of what a black man is supposed to be, conspire to not allowing them to live an authentic life genuine to themselves.

This event is co-sponsored by The Afro-American Cultural Center at Yale and The Student Wellness Center at Yale
