Colorlines has launched “Life Cycles of Inequity: A Series on Black Men.”  The series is described as  a monthly discussion including infographics, essays and video, “content focused on a life stage or event that for black men in the United States is uniquely confined by broad, societal inequities.”

André Robert Lee directed the first video in the series which features eight Oakland teens discussing their experiences with discrimination and unfair judgement they experience in school. The series will progress throughout the remainder of the year touching on a range of themes, from fatherhood to the incarceration of black men, to mortality rates and job opportunity.

To join the discussion, visit the Colorlines Facebook and Twitter.
