About the Event

How many times has society pressured you into wiping your eyes? You’re a BIG BOY! BIG BOYS, don’t cry! Get yourself together; you are the man of the house now. Our society has thrown these phases around for decades to instill and define the meaning of manhood.

In honor of Black History Month, this event is a tribute to men of color forced to grieve behind their mask of silence because to grieve any other way diminishes the role of being a man.

Here’s an opportunity to come together as a community to discuss how internalized grief impacts the wholeness of your personhood, your manhood.

We invite our brothers and sisters to join the grief journey, express their experiences around loss, learn how to support those who are grief sickened, and set a course for individual and community healing. 

Regardless of your losses: relationships, children, occupation, self-identity, culture, all are welcome.

We grieve separately, alone behind closed doors, or sitting in someone’s office. There’s nothing wrong with any of those scenarios, but at this moment let’s move towards the community approach to grieve unitedly.

It’s about hearing your voice as you go through the stages of grief.

Let’s remove the false lens and conditioned mindset that portrays a crying man as a weak man.

Let’s shorten the time of sitting in pain alone and silenced.

This year let us lean into healing the internal man so we can move the external man toward his destiny.

Guest Speaker: Tony Lynch, Founder of Memories of Us LTD...grief support for men also the host of memories of us. Host of the Let's Talk About It, podcast.

Founder of Memories of Us LTD.  I founded Memories of Us three years ago after going through some intense losses including my son and mother, two years later. After seeking support, I realized how little support there was for men, so  I set out to provide space for men to talk, connect and grieve without judgment.
