4:44 Syllabus Exploring Black Masculinity

The 4:44 Syllabus is a living document created by Black men and masculine non-binary people who were inspired by the labor of Black women, the emotional vulnerability of Jay-Z’s 4:44, focusing on Black men’s relationship to masculinity, emotional availability, maturity, sexuality, and Black capitalism. This syllabus provides resources to help us unpack the album’s content.
