It’s not often that we hear a group of mature, black men sit down and share their positive and dysfunctional experiences with love. And not just love for a partner but love for brothers, love for their children, grandchildren and themselves and love for God.
But The Washington Post and the Maynard Institute teamed up to launch a new, three-part series called “BrotherSpeak: Exploring the lives of black men.” The series includes interviews from a group of diverse black men, from different generations, professions and sexual preferences. The brothers sat down to talk about the people they love most and lessons they’ve learned in love. Check out their very honest, very inspiring thoughts below.
This is good for the soul. Though I’m sure it’s lack of ratchet will ensure that not as many people will watch; but I’m sure those who do will certainly take something away from this series.
What do you think of this series, would you like to see more interviews like this?
