LOS ANGELES– Through artistic expression this day-long symposium will facilitate a community dialogue on black masculinity, particularly its depiction in media arts in juxtaposition with lived experience. The summit features a screening of John Singleton’s critically acclaimed Boyz N the Hood (1991), followed by an audience-centered talkback with special guests. Invited artists, scholars, and Los Angeles community citizens will contribute to a number of provocative panel discussions that include facilitator-led breakout sessions, in addition to a storyslam and spoken word and dance performances. The Summit is designed to encourage participants to confront core questions about what it means to be human and to develop a deepened understanding of the value of fellow citizens and the gift of their stories. For more information and ADA accessibility please contact: project director, Dr. Joi Carr at joi.carr@pepperdine.edu.
