The Masculinity Project

Black Public Media (in collaboration with the Independent Television Service and the Ford Foundation) has launched The Masculinity Project, a collection of multi-generational voices to explore the question: What does it mean to be a man?

From the Intro Video:

We’re like in this… box. In order to be in that box you have to be strong. You have to be tough. You have to have a lot of girls. You gotta have money. You gotta be a player, or a pimp. Y’know, you gotta be in control.You have to dominate other men, other people. Y’know if you’re not any of those things then y’know people call you soft, or weak, or a pussy, or a chump, or a faggot. And nobody wants to be any of those things. So everybody stays inside the box.
