BLACK BOYS illuminates the full humanity of Black men and boys in America. An intimate, inter-generational exploration, Black Boys strives for insight to black identity and opportunity at the nexus of sports, education, and criminal justice. Speaking with an array of figures -- ranging from educators, athletes, journalists, activists, parents, and youth -- the documentary explores the body, mind, voice, and heart of Black boys and the double edged sword of having to build up their own self worth while knowing the world is not built for them. As various Black men and boys open themselves up to the camera, the emotional landscape of racism and its affects on them are revealed.
The film has a running time of 91 minutes.
This screening is a part of Unity Week and Friday Night Filmworks.
