Brandon Frame: A renaissance man with a social conscience and a global perspective. Brandon founded the Black Man Can, a non-profit dedicated to celebrating education and inspiring boys and men of color.
Don’t let social media rush you! Celebrate your small wins and do the work.
Instant gratification is not the real way of making your dreams manifest into reality.
Black men have a responsibility to acknowledge their privileges as men and use it to elevate the voices of black women and girls.
Men have a tendency to suffer in silence but there is an opportunity to create community to heal, foster restoration and build accountability.
Questions I asked :
- What drives you today in this work you’re doing today for the TheBlackManCan?
- What does it mean to be ‘a man’?
- What do you wish more people understood about black men?
- What do you think is the main thing holding black men and boys back, from reaching our highest potential?
- How can we as black men, begin to love ourselves, and build better relationships between each other and our wives/girlfriends and esp with our children?
- Tell us about the 1,000 T.I.E.S. initiative? Where did the idea come from and what has it accomplished?
