 SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

 

Greetings Moms of Black Boys United Community!

From Iggy (Black Boys Don't Cry) to Common and Meek Mill, the most influential artists have used their stage to tell the tales of what it's like to be a Black boy in America. MOBB United now offers our SONshines the opportunity to take the stage themselves to share their real time experiences as only they can. We want to give your son a voice to share his story with the world.

SONStories provides a platform to shed light on racial disparities from our perspective through various artforms such as visual art, spoken word, poetry, rap, and music, essay, interpretive dance. Participation in this program provides not only the chance to be heard but to help further the organizations goals to change the perception of our sons.

 

*PLEASE NOTE: SUBMITTING A PROJECT DOES NOT GUARANTEE INCLUSION*
