Overview

"Cut Dead but Still Alive: Caring for African American Young Men"

Dr. Gregory C. Ellison, III delivers a lecture entitled, "Cut Dead but Still Alive: Caring for African American Young Men." To cut dead means to refuse to acknowledge another with the intent to punish. Dr. Ellison says this is the plight of many African American young men. They are stigmatized with limited opportunity, silenced, rarely seen, and made vulnerable by a lack of sustained introspection. In this lecture, we will explore ways in which caregivers can sow seeds of life into the minds of young African American men that can lead to a flourishing life.
