Knowledge, Creativity, and Collegiate Black Men

A group of guys in the circle talking music, the game, and ideas (March 2010).

This semester, I'm writing a series of posts about knowledge, creativity, and collegiate black men. I'm mainly noting what I've learned observing and working with hundreds of young brothers at my university. I've spent considerable time writing about the creativity of black men writers and artists. So why not do more to highlight the younger guys in my immediate environment?
