Overview: In this session, we will explore how negative media portrayals of Black men lead to the normalization
of violence against them, especially through police brutality. Panelists from media, law enforcement,
government, entertainment, and Corporate America will analyze examples of negative media
portrayals, such as the "thug" or "gangster" image, examine how they contribute to systemic racism
and oppression, and discuss the harmful effects of these stereotypes and ways to challenge and
dismantle them. Participants will walk away with practical steps they can take to help advocate for
accurate and positive representations of Black men in media and society.
