Session Description:

When They See Us is a critically acclaimed documentary that shares the narrative of the Central Park Five's journey of being wrongfully accused until their exoneration. Black males navigate similar experiences at historically white institutions (HWIs): stereotyped, slighted, and surveilled. Utilizing tenets from Critical Race Theory and the Black Lives Matter movement, this presentation aims to create dialogue and foster reflection on the way that institutions’ historical context perpetuates power and oppression, leading to Black misandry experienced by Black males in higher education. Participants who attend this session will learn strategies and practical ways to create and transform spaces that eradicate anti-blackness and promote healing for Black males in higher education.
