Young Men of Color Media Literacy Group


Young Men Of Color Media Group

Media Literacy Program

What Students Learn: Students will be encouraged to develop more positive reflections of young men of color. They will participate in conversations about the representation of young men of color in television, movies, music and news media. They will also be given the opportunity to take ownership and recreate images of young Black and Latino men. Students will study media literacy, media production, and investigate their own lives with a working male artist of color. The program founders felt that it was integral to have teaching leadership that reflected the students in the class, to engender candid discussions and create a safe space for men and their peers to feel comfortable discussing issues they face in the job market, in education, and in their social life.
