Men of the Diaspora 

‘A space created for #Blackmen to talk, share, explore and express.’

Alexithymia /ˌeɪlɛksəˈθaɪmiə/ is a personality construct characterised by the sub-clinical inability to identify and describe emotions in the self.[1] The core characteristics of alexithymia are marked dysfunction in emotional awareness, social attachment, and interpersonal relating.

From since I can remember Ive held the notion that Men were not supposed to show emotions. In particular, emotions that expose vulnerability. There is a dysfunctional perception of Manhood among men in general but as Bell Hooks puts it

“In patriarchal culture, all males learn a role that restricts and confines. When #race and class enter the picture, along with patriarchy, then black males endure the worst impositions of gendered #masculine patriarchal identity”

Whether it is covert depression or Hyper-masculinity #Blackmen including myself are in dire need of a space. A place where we can openly talk, share and express ourselves with the hopes of challenging imposed ideas introspectively and create new self concepts of #Manhood.

Structure 

Men of the #Diaspora (MTD) Will run every last Sunday of the month from 7:30pm – 9:30 discussing various subjects over the course of the monthly meet ups such as;

  • What is Manhood / Masculinity?
  • Exploring vulnerability / Insecurities.
  • Health – Physical / spiritual / Mental
  • Interpersonal / Intrapersonal Communication 
  • Relationships 
  • Leadership
  • Emotional literacy / Emotion IQ
  • Sexuality 
  • Fatherhood
  • Gender Politics And many more

There will also be space for self critical reflection in our brotherhood circles which take place towards the end of the meetups. This is where any man present who is brave enough can take the floor and have an honest conversation with the surrounding brothers about issues they are facing.

Disclaimer* What is said in the Brotherhood circle stays in the Brotherhood circle

Brothers, Mandem, Fathers, Businessmen, hustlers, Men of the Diaspora. Regardless your walk in life, come join me and others and lets talk.
