About For Black Boys...

‘I found a king in me and now I love you

I found a king in you and now I love me’

Fashion advice and father figures. Jollof rice and misplaced loves. Empires in Africa and forbidden sex. There are good and bad days. In a group therapy session, six young Black men let their hearts and fantasies run wild.

For Black Boys... is a universe of music, dancing, storytelling, and poetry where six men collide and bond in a desperate effort to survive. Set on the border of happy imagination and harsh reality, these delicate confessions spark conversations that need to be had.
