127 W. 127th St. Conf. Rm. 432, Harlem, NY 10027

A barber shop conversation on how to reckon with our own kin, and how do we respond when the rapist is not ex-police officer Daniel Holtzclaw or White at all.
“But how many black men mobilized against rape within black communities? How many black men chose to, instead, shame black women into silence? How many black men tasked black women with hiding their own victimization from the eyes of society in order to protect the black men doing the victimizing?” - Ahmad Greene-Hayes
