• Real Talk with Real Men: Relationships Documentary & Panel Discussion
    Real Talk with Real Men: Relationships Documentary & Panel Discussion I’m Nicole L. Turner. I'm a first-time filmmaker. I’ve written books about relationships and have talked about relationships on TV and radio, but one thing appeared to be consistent, I was speaking from a woman’s point of view. As someone who is passionate about helping people become the best version of themselves, I find that one area many women struggle with is understanding men. A lot of relationship experts, when they speak about relationships, they primarily talk to the women, while at the same time, bashing the men. I wanted to change the narrative. I wanted to give men a platform to tell their side of the story. Real Talk with Real Men explores relationships though the eyes of men. Join us on Sunday, November 11th at the iconic Old Greenbelt Theater for the documentary viewing and an audience Q&A with the men who participated in the this documentary. You can view the trailer here https://www.realtalkwithrealmen.com/ ****THERE WILL BE NO TICKET SALES AT THE DOOR***** PURCHASE TICKETS FOR TOMORROW'S EVENT ASAP!! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/real-talk-with-real-men-documentary-release-and-panel-discussion-tickets-48529475969
