Black Male Privilege: A Contradiction? An Illusion? A Reality?
This panel is part of Esther Armah's New Monthly Live Interactive Emotional Justice Conversation Series -Afrolicious Black men are in crisis. Prison, schools, racism, brutality. But what about black male privilege? What does it look like? How do we define it? How and who does it hurt or help? How does it inform our relationships? Is it our silent reality: un-discussed, unspoken, unrevealed?
Byron Hurt, Marc Lamont Hill, Mark Anthony Neal, R. L’Heureux Lewis take on black male privilege and break it down.
