Let’s begin our analysis with a picture seen below. Take a few moments to look over it and we’ll discuss later.

I think its a limiting definition. Its all good to honor our Black queens but Black men are much more than this.

Thank you for taking time out to share your perspective. I appreciate your words. I also agree with your comments but may I ask you to elaborate because remember this is a working definition, meaning we all together can build on the elements which will constitute the definition. Should it happen, this doesn't mean we can't respectfully disagree, examine and critique--on both sides--because that's how we can arrive at a consensus or the "working definition."

I welcome your insights.

I said I thought it was a limiting definition because I didnt understand that you meant to build a "complete" definition and this was a first step. My bad. In that case I feel your picture should be one of the first if not thee first definition mentioned. We are nothing without our women. All else fails without giving honor and respect to our women. I submit the definition of protector. A Black man should be willing to give his life for his family.

Agreed. But remember, if we disagree on things, it doesn't mean animosity between you and I. We're just having a conversation. I say that to preface a philosophical challenge to you.

Don't forget we're discussing what a "conscious" brother looks like. Your elements are good but if you think about it, you don't have to be "conscious" to wanna protect those you love, right?

So we have Protection, right. Excellent. That's a good one. An important one.

It's necessary, but not sufficient.

Give me more bro? What are some more elements which may define a "conscious" black man?

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
