Little Patuxent Review

“I Am A Black Man. That’s what’s printed in big white letters across my chest. Except, I’m not black. I’m not even a man. I’m a white woman wearing a t-shirt in support of the Black Male Identity Project. (Full disclosure: I’m the Administrator of Art on Purpose, a community arts organization that has launched and supports the Black Male Identity Project.) I don’t wear this t-shirt all the time. I just happen to be working today, standing behind a table at a booth during ArtScape—America’s largest free arts festival—and I’m attracting a lot of attention.”
