60-second Public Service Announcement (PSA): "Conceal and Carry: A Threat Against Young African American Men"

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
In this student presentation and PSA created in Synergy's Spring 2017 English 2015 "College Composition and Rhetoric II" class, we three students will show our short video we created in class last month.  Then, we will discuss how young African American males (wearing baggy clothes and a hoodie, for example) are inaccurately, culturally scripted as "unhealthy=dangerous" to society. We will also suggest that individuals who want to get a conceal and carry permit should have to learn more about the negative effects of stereotyping young African American males as part of their permit training.  And, we will touch on how this topic affects us all in Wyoming, in the context of recent Wyoming Legislative actions about conceal and carry permits on campuses and in schools in our state.
