Teddy Benson in 'Black Men's Perspectives'

Black Men’s Perspectives

Black Men’s Perspectives on Hair, Race and Black History Month

We set out to gain a better understanding of Black History Month. In doing so we reconnected with California Jones, who invited some of his boys who might be willing to offer black men’s perspectives, direct and unadulterated.

In candid interviews with San Diego rapper Teddy Benson, and actor/model/producer California Jones, we heard it straight and raw. There’s not much more to say except we were pumped to be hangin with the boys.

We’re grateful to have had this opportunity and share it with you. We have always said long hair transcends; this experience has solidified that belief.
