Perceptions Shattered: African American Masculinity
Told by youth, Perceptions Shattered broke down African-American Masculinity and looked into the reasons young Black men feel the need to act tough, use the N word and don't fit into a preconceived mold. Black Men working to progress, mature, and provide for themselves and their families... this program explored the variety of experiences and trials young Black Men face in today's America. Perceptions Shattered featured some of the best stories on Generation PRX - a project of PRX that is dedicated to youth radio. Hosted by Chicago-Area hip hop artist Nam1Sekatti, and produced by Jason Marck at WBEZ, with support from the National Black Programmer's Consortium and PRX, Perceptions Shattered was a journey to a much more compelling, complicated and accurate portrait of what it is to be young, Black and male.
