Question Bridge: Black Males is a platform for black men of all ages and backgrounds to ask and candidly respond to questions that are rarely discussed in public. Question Bridge: A Dialogue Amongst Men aims to represent and redefine the black male’s identity in America. We invite established and emerging black males in the community to discuss concepts of Understanding Black Masculinity, Marginalization, Provide & Protect: The role of Black Men in today’s World, and the Powers of Communication. This is a challenge to dismantle communication boundaries between the generations while exploring the identity and socio-economic issues as a model for understanding the complexity of being a Man.
