Byron Hurt, award-winning documentary filmmaker, lecturer, published writer, and activist to speak at Eastern Michigan University
On December 10, Byron Hurt, a national speaker, award-winning documentary filmmaker, lecturer, published writer and anti-sexist activist, will visit Eastern Michigan University to speak about how hyper-masculinity in popular American culture normalizes male violence, how race, class, and gender oppression intersect, how homophobia and transphobia makes LGBT communities vulnerable to male violence, and more.
In the wake of recent highly publicized sexual assault scandals, and the women-led resistance movement that birthed the #MeToo and #TimesUp era, Byron Hurt combines his award-winning documentary films with a dynamic speaking style that challenges audiences to question, reimagine, and redefine manhood and gender roles in the age of Trump. The free and open-to-the-public event will be held in the EMU Student Center Ballroom beginning at 7 p.m.
