Author Talk: MARY E. GILDER

Author Talk Mary GilderFrom the author of the award winning novel A Misrepresentation Of Myself, comes a nonfiction book that explores the complexities of love from a male’s perspective. Gilder begins with a single question, one millions of women have asked before her, “Do men have the capacity to love profoundly?”

Her book, Even a Man Can Have a Broken Heart, was written as a tool to help increase women’s understanding of love and the way men experience heartbreak and loss. Moreover, she hopes to help men gain insight into how their experiences, past and present, may have a direct impact on decisions made each and every day. Join Mary on a journey to understand love and its many manifestations.

THE NIGGA Project Experience – Film Screening & Workshop

Nigga Project ExperienceThe Nigga Project Experience is a workshop focused around a documentary designed to emotionally connect youth in our communities to the original intent behind the “N” word using elders in the community to speak on how they feel about the term. The goal of the film is to give youth an alternative thought to the word’s use and help them think critically about why they use the word so loosely.

After the documentary is shown, using trauma informed care we initiate activities with the viewers designed to provide healing from the injuries the “N” word and the experiences linked to the word may have caused. We also discuss how the term can be eradicated if at all possible and new words that we can use to identify one another as we progress out of bondage.
