A searing examination of the role that myths, stereotypes and misrepresentations have played in the lives of modern black men, “What Black Men Think” is an eye-opening look at the race issues that are still very prevalent in the United States today. “What Black Men Think” explores how negative imagery in the media, the failed policy of the Great Society, and a modern black leadership that has abandoned many of its historically unifying tenets have all led to a new form of mental slavery in the black community.
Documentary Channel is primarily available through satellite television services DISH Network (Channel 197) and DIRECTV (Channel 267).
