Life Cycles of Inequity: A Colorlines Series on Black Men is a package of content focused on highlighting life stages or events that, for black men in the United States, are uniquely confined by broad, social inequities. The examples used are sourced from places where existing data have shown a profound relationship between poor outcomes and being a black man.

The goal of this content series is to start a broader dialogue about these inequities and help inform a public conversation about solutions. Each content example also includes a short documentary, directed by award winning filmmaker, André Robert Lee. Series chapters include: Life & Death, Fatherhood, Economic Opportunity, Creating Culture, Crime & Justice, Finding Work and High School.
