“At House of Pentacles, we have a saying that ‘we help each other survive, stunningly’ because we are invested in not only our individual and collective survival, but also our quality of life, and ability to thrive.”

Black men and masculine folks have benefitted from the system of patriarchy. From being present to the mundane, what might we learn about the habit of patriarchy and how it lives in each of our bodies? There is wisdom in each movement we make. How might we conjure a post-patriarchal society from this study and unlearning? How does your masculinity take form outside of patriarchy? What does your NuMas(k)ulinity look like?
