Men Do Cry: Father's Day Forum in Atlanta stirs Raw Emotions


 Who says black men aren't suppose to talk about their feelings? Hypermasculinity and sexuality are issues that need to be discussed in order to build better husbands, fathers and role models in black  communities.

 Black women cannot raise grown men as some of us unfortunately had the "Papa was a rolling stone" soundtrack to our lives as well. However, all hope is not lost when those black men who have bravely worked through their issues step up and assist in teaching or becoming role models for those who may lack knowledge and/or life experience about leadership and manhood. Each One, Teach One!

Sisters are with you, as always, when you need us.

Happy Reading & Happy Father's Day!
