Dangerous Negroes

Dangerous Negroes

Black Student Identity and Activism in a Climate of H.A.T.E.

The Program "Dangerous Negroes" is a multimedia experience that seeks to answer the question, "does Black life matter?" It is a historical examination of the Black experience in America, including how contemporary events such as the deaths of Sandra Bland, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Eric Garner all impact the narrative that America is post racial. Critically engaging in its presentation this program will have audiences re-evaluating their views on racism, manhood, and social justice. The Purpose 1) Critically examine the Black student experience in the USA. 2) Contextualize the incidents surrounding Black homicide as systemic in nature that are capable of being addressed by student activism. 3) Teach student activist to clearly and simply articulate the rationale for their activism using concise language that is institutionally appropriate in higher ed settings (particularly PWI's). 4) Propose strategies for framing and addressing violence directed toward Black people. 5) Reintroduce Black people as human beings worthy of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Can be presented as a keynote, workshop or other training in 30, 60 and 90 minute sessions.
