Myles Loftin's 'HOODED' project seeks to humanise Black boys and men in hoodies

Gigantic Magazine featured Myles Loftin’s ‘HOODED’ project back in 2020:

Society’s negative view of Black males needs to be erased because it’s extremely harmful and divisive. It contributes to the reason Black males are targeted more by police, why we receive longer jail sentences than our white counterparts, and the discrimination that we receive. This project seeks to understand where these negative portrayals come from, and how we can change them for a better future.

Also, by reversing the portrayals of Black and white males, this project seeks to understand how the perception of both changes depending on how they are depicted.
