About Black & Dangerous
“Black & Dangerous” is a collaborative project utilizing poetry, portraiture, and reportage to redefine the way Black people are perceived because of stereotypes. Through various visual and audible mediums, Black folk share their individual experiences, beliefs, and feelings of what it means to be Black & Dangerous, both to society and as redefined to themselves. This project aims to shift the negative narratives society has placed on the Black community and give control back to the individual. Black & Dangerous is giving Black folk the power to reclaim their voice and see the positive contributions they provide to society because of who they are at their core. Black & Dangerous is a celebration of individuality within the Black community while observing the emotional and mental cycles these stereotypes contribute to.
