Black News Channel Interview with Taroue Brooks on the “What About Me” Documentary


What About Me is a riveting look into the experience of African American Men and their history in America.  Black men and boys have endured extreme racism and prejudice in every aspect of their lives from, economics, jobs, politics and even social existence to this very day. Yet, we are still succeeding.  However, the struggle continues and our stories, emotions and traumas need to be explored, heard and discussed.
