10 Black Male TED Talks You Must Watch!

TED Talks has definitely come one of my favorite things to watch when I have some down time. Just like NPR’s Tiny Desk concerts for artist, TED Talks give you a different prospective on view point from different people, can be motivational and tear jerking at times because of a speaker talking about a topic that hits home. Recently I began to look up TED Talks from black men and I am so glad that I did. From speeches that spoke on dangerous lessons of masculinity, the problems we go through growing up to be black men in America, to what can be learned between prosecutors and incarcerated people are just some of the topics that are spoken on. Below I have put together a list of 10 TED Talks from black men that I feel every black man should watch.
