Can Black Masculinity be Decolonized?: A Documentary
My doctoral project seeks to identify Black men's performative strategies to transgress adversity, cultivate, and empower diverse communities in Canada. I centre the Black male experience within the Black Canadian struggle, historicized and grounded in Black men and women's progressive work and solidarity. This documentary employs Black feminist, decolonial and critical hip-hop studies to complexify Black masculinity within the social sciences, illuminating all Black people's indispensable contributions and epistemologies to the Canadian social fabric.
