Men of Color Share Community College Experience

If you're a community college student, especially a man (or woman) of color (like me), this video will feel familiar. You'll identify with what these men are sharing about how they experience college. 

From race to best teaching practices, these men share their feelings and experiences, as well as suggestions for how to make the community college experience better. I was blown away, and I hope you are too.

And if you're a community college administrator, or maybe even not a student of color, this video is just as important, if not more so. It uncovers what this experience is like, what these men deal with, and how we can do a better job of creating a community where their potential can soar.

Because in the end, that's what I was left with at the end of this video. Potential. Talent. That is what is so clearly evident in these guys. As the report that was released with the video shares, it's potential we're going to lose if we don't collectively do something about it. The time is now.

And if you like this video you'll also love this one featuring middle/high school young men sharing what it feels like to be discriminated against.
