Coaching Boys into Men

These posters, developed by the Family Violence Prevention fund for outreach in the African American community, read: Boys learn from men. Do your part to help stop violence against girls and women in the African American community. Teach boys that violence against girls and women is wrong. Boys need to understand from men that violence does not equal strength, and that there is honor and pride in taking a stand for respect and against violence against women.

More Tools You Can Use

Here are some additional tools available from across the country for groups and individuals engaging men and boys in ending men’s violence.

Hip Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes

From the view of a fan, Hip Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes offers a “loving critique” that takes an in-depth look at manhood in rap music and hip-hop culture-where creative genius, poetic beauty, and mad beats collide with misogyny, violence and homophobia.

Hip Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes gives us a chance to look at how popular culture sends messages about manhood and violence. What kinds of messages are mainstream hip-hop and other media sending? How do these messages inform our work in creating a new model of manhood? This film is a great tool for community discussions, and the producers have developed a facilitator’s guide and discussion guide along with other resources you can download for free (available here).
