Malik Yoba is speaking out in a new documentary that explores the fear of Black men and the stereotypes that encourage it.
Filmmaker Mya B is getting ready to release a documentary about the stigma that Black men face with Afraid of Dark. Examining the two major stereotypical depictions of Black men (Mandigo and the Brute), Mya aims to debunk “scientific racism.”
The film comes as the nation continues to ponder the impact of Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law that saw Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis’ respective killers walk away virtually scot-free. Not to mention the murder of New Yorker Sean Bell, who was gunned down by police just hours before his wedding.
