We strive to bring light to a commonly overlooked issue: teen dating violence. "Shades of Gray" refers to abusive behavior in relationships that are not always viewed by society as unhealthy. Subtle tactics and manipulative behavior to gain control over one's partner play a major role in modern day teen dating relationships. Our mission is to educate and advocate for victim rights.
By now, everybody has probably heard of, or listened to, Chris Brown and Rihanna’s remixes together.
Instead of debating the facts of Chris and Rihanna’s relationship, I think we could all benefit from a broader discussion of dating violence in the young black community, and the norms in our society that allow these problems to persist.
