In recognition of Black History Month, onePULSE Foundation is hosting a free virtual screening of the award-winning short documentary, “Body Language,” followed by a thought-provoking discussion with the filmmaker, Odu Adamu, and guest panelists on Wednesday, February 15, from 7 to 9pm.
How does it feel to look in the mirror and body shame yourself? When the body you have just isn’t enough? When your body doesn’t live up to the standards imposed onto you by your own community? How does it feel? The screening and panel discussion will explore body image through the lens of African American same-gender-loving men.
In addition to Adamu, panelists will include Daniel Downer, Bros in Convo, and Will McKinney-Raphelt, featured in “Body Language.”
The event is part of onePULSE’s Conversation Starters, which is a component of a broader Conversation Series, sponsored by JPMorgan Chase & Co., CITY Furniture, Orlando Utilities Commission, and Northrop Grumman.
