The Question Bridge: Black Males project is a platform for Black men of all ages and backgrounds to ask and respond to questions about life in America. We created it to stimulate connections and understanding among Black men, but we also wanted to show the diversity of thought, character and identity in the Black male population so rarely seen in American media. In essence, we want to represent and redefine Black male identity in America.”

It was initiated by artists and cultural organisations and encourages people to participate through an online platform and special events. Question Bridge is local and national in orientation and concerned with anti-discrimination, equality and social justice, education, research, knowledge production and information access and media democratisation

It began in 1996 and is ongoing.
