Empowering Ourselves Now

I received an email the other day from Dartmouth College student Jarrett Mathis. He is a product of the Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, NY. Over the past few years he used several research grants to find an effective way to stop Black youth from using the N-word.

Earlier this year, he transformed this research into a documentary that can be seen on his website. Here is a trailer that gives you an idea of what to expect from the full documentary:

I encourage all villagers to check out the full documentary and support Bro. Mathis as you deem appropriate. Come back and let us know what you thought about his website, documentary and efforts.
