Media is constantly reframing realty to denigrate African-American heroes. Rasheed Shabazz teaches his students to use social media and memes to take back the narrative. Watch this video of his presentation for all the funny memes, and to become aware of when the media becomes dehumanizing.

Rasheed is also Community Engagement Manager for the Brotherhood of Elders Network, an intergenerational group of Black men in the Bay Area.
