Waynflete Sponsors Screening of Tough Guise 2: Violence, Manhood, and American Culture
Waynflete invites all parents to a screening of the film “Tough Guise 2” at the Freeport High School Performing Arts Center, March 27th, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. We are pleased to help sponsor the screening which is hosted by Boys to Men and TARP (the Tolerance and Respect Project). The mission of the Portland based nonprofit Boys to Men includes “supporting the development of emotionally fluent, civically engaged boys” by promoting conversations about masculinity that move beyond limiting gender stereotypes. Later this month, Executive Director, Drew Wing, will join a group of Upper School volunteer mentors and 7th grade boys to share and discuss clips from the recent release of “Tough Guise 2: Violence, Manhood, and American Culture. ” This thought-provoking film features speaker and educator Jackson Katz and attempts to deconstruct the cultural messages about violence and manhood aimed at boys and young men as well as promote a broader range of possibilities for expressing one’s true self.
