The Black Man: the most coveted, feared, persecuted, emulated, desired man on the planet. Join with me as we begin to slowly chip away at the detrimental and unhealthy definition of what it is to be a Black man and start to redefine what it takes to be a strong, empowered Black man in this society. A GOOD Black man is one who is honest even when he recognizes the consequences of his actions might be detrimental to him, who understands that he has to develop all aspects of his personality in order to be a whole human being. A REAL Black man is one who acknowledges that woman are equal and necessary partners in a relationship and that their needs, wants, and desires deserve equal consideration, and who isn’t afraid to admit his fears and shortcomings, one who is willing to push past the pain in order to heal.
