Come join the Ali Center and Own It Initiative of The Center for Women and Families for Part 1 of 4 in our film and conversation series:

MASKulinities:  Exploring What It Means to “Be a Man”

We are hosting a FREE screening The Mask You Live In.

THE MASK YOU LIVE IN FOLLOWS BOYS AND YOUNG MEN AS THEY STRUGGLE TO STAY TRUE TO THEMSELVES WHILE NEGOTIATING AMERICA’S NARROW DEFINITION OF MASCULINITY.

FILM SYNOPSIS

Pressured by the media, their peer groups, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify women, and resolve conflicts through violence. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become “real” men.

Conversation after the film with:
Rus Funk - The Center for Women & Families
Aubrey Williams - Youth Advocate & Community Activist
Dr. Choi Hoon - Assistant Professor of Theology - Bellarmine University
Marcel Parent - Muhammad Ali Center

Trailer: http://therepresentationproject.org/films/the-mask-you-live-in/

When: Thursday - August 27th @ 6:00PM

Where: The Muhammad Ali Center Auditorium - 144 N. 6th Street 

RSVP Required as we expect a sold-out show.  Please check-in when you arrive.  We will have a wait list for a potential second screening later this year.
