Six years ago, The Washington Post embarked on an unprecedented project: a several-months-long journey exploring the lives of black men. Through pictures and one-on-one interviews, in-depth stories and award-winning video, The Post’s series, titled “Being a Black Man”, revealed the sometimes complex lives of African American men.
Today, The Post, in cooperation with the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education, continues another project that explores the experiences of black men in America. Titled “BrotherSpeak,” the three-part video series is another chance to hear from the black men about what matters most to them. For the series, we asked a range of black men to discuss three words: Fear, love and dream. Each video focuses on one word.
