Reviews

Winston was phenomenal! He had such a nuanced and intellectual approach that unpacked many complex conversations in the black community - black identity, masculinity, sexualization of black men, community. I haven’t stopped hearing enough good things about him and the event. I'm not sure if we could have had a better speaker for the theme.
