An educational documentary that explores the roles of African American men and boys in the prevention of sexual violence.

USA | 32 min | NR | Dir. Marc A. Grimmett, David Hambridge

My Masculinity Helps explores the role of African American men and boys in the prevention of sexual violence. It shows African American male allies (psychologist, professor, peer educator, attorney, pastor, athlete, middle and high school students, activist) demonstrating understanding and support for survivors of sexual violence. Strategies for assistance and prevention are provided. Survivors also share their stories and what has helped them. The film serves as a counter-narrative to often inaccurate and misleading portrayals of African American masculinity. Our goal is to engage boys and men in the deconstruction of gender roles, masculinity, and power and in the prevention of sexual violence. It can be used in schools, colleges, and athletic, professional, community, and faith-based organization.
