11 Nov African American Masculinity Subject of Innovative Multimedia and Community Engagement Initiative
The National Black Programming Consortium (NBPC) and the Independent Television Service (ITVS), announce the launch of THE MASCULINITY PROJECT: Black Community in Focus—an interactive multimedia and community engagement project that asks the question “What does it mean to be a man?” Its purpose is to enlist diverse, independent, multigenerational conversations surrounding the African American community. While the main topic is masculinity, there is a focus on the broader issues facing the African American community in the 21st century.
THE MASCULINITY PROJECT has a national community-based reach through a major community engagement initiative in partnership with some of the country’s leading organizations. The project also features an array of interactive content on its online portal that can be found at:www.masculinityproject.org.
