"A Deadly Silence: Black Men and Boys"
Guest Dr. Tommy J. Curry

Texas A&M University, Professor of Philosophy, 
Black Studies and Critical Race Theory; author, “The Man Not”

Most Black men and boys have not been trained to talk about gender in ways that articulate men’s historical experiences with accuracy–outside of investments in traditional patriarchal tropes, and consequently they are often not able to participate in discussions on Black gender matters. But what of their population in prison, school failure and the unemployment stats? Are we leaving them behind and have we diminished or snuffed out the voice of Black men and boys? Who speaks for our Fathers, Sons, Brothers, Uncles and Nephews?

We are so pleased to have Dr. Curry join us again.
