I Instagrammed and Tweeted this photo with the above caption this morning. It was in support of Essence Magazine’s #HeIsNotASuspect Campaign.
On Tuesday, July 16, Essence launched #HeIsNotASuspect, “a counter-stereotyping campaign designed to challenge negative images of young African American men”.
The publication is calling on us to Tweet, Facebook, and Instagram photos of black boys we care about with a caption explaining why they are more than a stereotype, using the hashtag #HeIsNotASuspect .
I think this is an awesome way to document the beauty of black boys and men in our society. Don’t let your sons and loved ones be demonized by the media. Do your part to change society’s opinion of our men. Because, they are NOT suspicious!
