    Confronting the Vestiges of Colonial Masculinity with Mental Health and Masculinity Expert, Leroy Mitchell

    Confronting the Vestiges of Colonial Masculinity with Mental Health and Masculinity Expert, Leroy Mitchell

    In the hospital recovering from surgery, Leroy Mitchell was depressed and without purpose. The NFL was the long game. There was no back-up plan that interested him. Fortunately the well-timed gift of a Bell Hooks' book from his mentor changed his life. It offered a new way to view his life, his maleness, his future. The conversation on colonial masculinity has opened up my eyes to how much it defines our view of our gender roles, regardless of our sexual identity. Powerful conversation.
    Leroy Mitchell is a Masculinity and Mental Health Trainer for the Black Emotional and Mental Health Collective (BEAM).
    Favorite song/artist: Frankie Ocean (Link to Thinking 'Bout You)
    Favorite words: "Integrity means being whole, unbroken, undivided. It describes a person who has unified the parts of his or her or their personality, so that there is no longer a split in the soul."

Intern Jude ,

Wow

I came across this show and am blown away by the level of storytelling and vulnerability from each guest. I was pleasantly surprised to feel connected to each brother’s interview I’ve heard so far — and I say that as a 30-something, millennial, first generation Asian-American straight woman. In other words, connecting on a human level with each guest through their sharing has been so insightful and humbling as a listener. I’ve cried, laughed, and been speechless in silence through this show. Grateful for each Brother who has and will share their stories about their life experiences.

My best so far

The most open honest and intimate conversation interview I’ve had

S to the third power ,

A major contribution to our nation

This man is so positive and I wish everyone could listen to him especially children. His story can help us understand the struggle and ways to overcome the while helping other races see the commonalities we all share.
