The Hero of a Thousand Faces

In Joseph Campbell's The Hero with a Thousand Faces, his seminal treatise on myth and legend, he suggests that stories of heroes from every culture and society follow a similar pattern. He called this the hero's journey. This journey takes the hero through trials and hardships that ultimately lead to self discovery and triumph. The Hero of a Thousand Faces Project seeks to discover that pattern as it pertains to black men as they seek inclusion and contribution to a society that might see them otherwise.
