Real African Men Vs. Hollywood Stereotypes

In this video brought to you by Mama Hope and directed by Joe Sabia, four Kenyan men - Benard, Brian, Derrick, Gabriel - are letting you know that the typical African man is nothing like the ones portrayed on movies and TV.

They said, "If people believed only what they saw in movies, they would think we are all warlords who love violence." They, like Mama Hope, are tired of the over-sensationalized, one-dimensional depictions of African men and the white savior messaging that permeates our media. They wanted to tell their own stories instead, so we handed them the mic and they made this video.
