As you may know, BrotherSpeak is a three-part video series that gave voice to a range of black men about what matters most to them. For the series, we asked 18 black men to discuss three words: Fear, love and dream. Each video focuses on one word.
The Fear episode, initially released on December 20th, featured Dick Gregory, the civil rights activist and comedian; national renowned educator Freeman Hrabowski III, president of University of Maryland- Baltimore County; U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN); Etan Thomas, a former professional basketball player and author; Tony Lewis, Jr, a non-profit coordinator from Washington, DC; and Tray Chaney, an actor who starred in the HBO series, The Wire.
For the Twitter chat we invited a series of black men — from activists to advocates to artists — to talk about what their Fears as black men. Check out a bit of the conversation through this Storify compilation.
