It’s time for Redefining “Man Up” Properly for the Culture, …..and Jerk Chicken. 

As two black-card carrying men from the city of Detroit who graduated from Wayne State University (Detroit) in the College of Engineering and now pursuing adulthood: Jerrell and Richard have learned that being a man in today’s society is layered while the definition for “Man Up” needs to be addressed in a time where mental illness is being discussed more and more. 

One day, Jerrell posted a status in 2017 about black men having a space to end toxic masculinity through speaking their truth and talk about the things our culture tends to shy away from and become better husbands, boyfriends, brothers, cousins, fathers and friends amongst other things. Richard liked, commented, and slid in the DMs. 

It’s time to Redefine “Man Up” Properly for the culture and take care of our minds. Why? Because your MENTAL MATTERS.
