ordan, Damon & Tony are curious – is categorizing certain stories as trauma porn fair?
This week is centered around the hot topic of “trauma porn”. We have seen various stories that highlight the painful history of Black Americans. Sometimes it feels that these are the only stories Hollywood wants to share about us. We interrogate the line between art sharing truth versus what can sometimes feel like a one dimensional depiction of Black life. As a people, we represent an infinite expanse of stories and experiences. Our pain is valid, but we are so much more.
We know a lot, but we don’t know it all, so join the conversation on social and let us know your thoughts.
