That’s Not Me: Building a Better Self-Image and Breaking Black Male Stereotypes


Music culture has played a large role in both defining and rejecting labels that come to influence how we see Black men. Whilst the media and society at large have much to say about Black men, how do we define ourselves? Even more importantly, how do we begin to determine what is good and bad for our growth and where we want to go in life?

This workshop is the first of its kind at BCA, led by Yomi Sode a ground-breaking playwright, published poet and long serving Community and Youth Worker. His recent work has been staged at the Roundhouse and includes projects such as COAT sessions and The Daddy Diaries.

Through interactive discussions, one-to-one conversations and questions framed around labels that exists in Black Music, this session is an attempt to break down stereotypes and to collectively create a healthy self-image that inspires a higher version of ourselves.
