About this submission

Black Sparrow represents the voices of many misunderstood and often unheard young black men coping with mental health. In many cases, people within the black community self medicate instead of seeking help and in this case, my brother, being diagnosed at the age of 18, has received medication but is also dedicated to self medicating for his own personal reasons personified within the film. In his own words, he described himself as being "Black Sparrow", the black Jack Sparrow because he constantly feels as if he is running from himself, people, and his fears.
