Beyond Numbness and Anger
February 4, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
These feelings are shared by so many people today. How do you move past them? How do WE move past them? With courage, laughter, and a little help. Join us for this rare, authentic moment when four males of color — comedians Ali Siddiq and Che Guerrero, Dr. Neil Bardhan, and activist Edwin Desamour — talk about the true experiences that lead to these and other feelings. In conversation with co-hosts Dr. Jean Wright and Gabriel Bryant, we’ll discuss ways to move past numbness and anger toward wellness. The event is sponsored by The City of Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health & Intellectual disAbility Services’ Engaging Males of Color (EMOC) initiative in collaboration with First Person Arts.
Engaging Males of Color (EMOC) is an initiative of the City of Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services. EMOC creates innovative programming to give males of color and their support networks a platform to discuss current issues in their communities.
