Danton Floyd is the founder and lead organizer for 360 Nation. With over 10 years experience as an educator and developmental practitioner, his body of work focuses on the exploration and utilization of cultural assets as a mechanism for community transformation. Danton believes that real community change is bottom up, not top down, and people have the power to shape their existence. Therefore, he promotes critical consciousness and the obtainment of a creative or technical skillset as a means to promote will and self-determination.
A major focus of Danton’s work looks to address the impacts of patriarchy, capitalism, and white supremacy on Black male identity formation. He believes healing practices, such as dialogue, action, and reflection are imperative in the transformation of Black male expression. Through his pedagogical practices, Danton promotes the promotion of critical imagination as a means to bring forth an alternative to toxic Black masculinity.
