Looking at our diverse backgrounds, upbringing and how we viewed ourselves when we were younger men in comparison to the men we want to be today; the progressive man. Also, growing up black in a disadvantaged community, we didn’t have too many positive male role models and as a man – a father or father figure- a positive male role model is important. You are not the man you used to be, you are living in a different world compared to the world your parents enjoyed, there is always a progressiveness that comes with growth, no matter how painful the process is. Sometimes leaving the things and places that shaped you is necessary for you to be the best version of yourself. We sat down with George Matsheke, Ashley Moetlo, Lazi Mathebula, Tibz Motsoane and Siya Beyile to unpack these conversations in order to help us #startStrong. What are your thoughts about this conversations and what is your heritage story?
