Event Description:

"Double consciousness" is a term first coined by the praised W.E.B DuBois in his 1903 publication, "The Souls of Black Folk." Double consciousness describes the individual sensation of feeling as though your identity is divided into several parts, making it difficult or impossible to have one unified identity. DuBois spoke of this within the context of race relations in the United States. He asserted that since American blacks have lived in a society that has historically repressed and devalued them that it has become difficult for them to unify their black identity with their American identity.

It has been a couple of months since the reelection of President Barack Obama, our first African American president, but society still judges his performance through racial lenses. Black males are often stigmatized as lazy, uneducated, promiscuous, and lacking ambition. With this event we will hear from incredible panelists who will discuss how Black Males can better address efforts of achieving success without losing the common touch; excelling in life, without 'selling out' the race; and getting to where you need to go, but remembering where you are from.
