Introduction to Photo Essay Collection - The Beauty and Humanity of Black Men in America
In the eyes of the media, black men are often portrayed in a negative light. Images and language choices are soaked with references to violence, stereotypical rhetoric and values reminiscent of our not so distant colonial past. The only answer I see is to combat the onslaught of negativity with truth. Black men are fathers, brothers, husbands, doctors, lawyers, businessmen, community activists, artists, musicians and an integral part of our community and society at large. My photo project seeks to explore the humanity and beauty of black men by flooding the media with honest, real and true images of everyday men of color.
