Connectedness to Brotherhood Experiences ---

Connection of External Environment to Black Men.

"Black men are more likely to have symptoms of lifelong PTSD than their counterparts, but less likely to seek therapeutic treatment."

STATISTICS

Black men deserve validation in healing.

"A black man from a black family in the top

1%

has the same chance of being incarcerated as a white man from a white family who makes

$36,000

per year."

It is not just economic. it is a systemic mindset.
