About this submission
“How To Raise A Black Boy” based off the fantastical and literary journey of “Peter Pan,” originally was my analysis of my queer black childhood, but it grew, beyond my childhood to become a collage of my academics, of current American politics, and of the shared experience of childhood secrets that haunt our adulthoods. “How To Raise A Black Boy” is a “once upon a time” story told from the past to the future. I see myself, my brothers, my fathers, and my lovers. In this fairy-tale we can all coexist in our mutual experiences as black boys.
