Black Men Build is a brand that brings Black Men together online to discuss important issues. It is meant to aesthetically resonate with the streetwear, hip-hop and luxury brand world that black men are exposed to and influenced by.
The language and the programming of Black Men Build relies heavily on racial solidarity and ideas of Black men as strong pillars of their communities and calls for black men to join the ranks of something larger than themselves.
Our work invites feelings of strength, home, self determination, love, unity, power, and responsibility. These are essential elements that drive Black male engagement.
Our foundational goal is to facilitate men seeing themselves as subjects who make history rather than object upon whom history occurs and thus incredibly important.
Our work touches on the lives of Black Men in the United States as well as the context of the 2020 election and the COVID-19 crisis.
