South Bronx native, Christopher Saunders, joins Samantha and Remoy to shed some light on how masculinity has affected the 'hood. Saunders shares some eye-opening stories from his childhood growing up in the South Bronx. Saunders goes on to uncover the way masculinity is tied to survival and not just for men but for everyone in the 'hood. Saunders also speaks to how the LGBTQ community is prevalent in the 'hood, but how masculinity seeks to silence their voice. Finally, Saunders tells the story of how when driving a block away from Times Square, he was pulled over and arrested and how that shaped his current journey into the criminal justice system.
