A Mother Finds Men Who Are Committed to Youth

Jasmine

Baltimore, MD – Park Heights Section

“I brought my niece and my son out to this anti-violence demonstration today so they could see we are strongest when we are united. Most of all I want my four year old son to see older men who are committed to younger people, and defy many stereotypes. It’s good to know there are men who can provide an example of what my son can grow to be.” – Jasmine

Remembering a Father on Father’s Day

The Roper Pride

Stories of absent fathers have become commonplace in the narrative of the Black community. While there’s a tendency to avoid consistent conversations about the real reasons why so many men are absent from their children’s lives, even more damaging are the limited opportunities to provide examples of fathers who foster high quality relationships with their children and families in ways that positively impact our community.

Have we failed to consider how their examples can inform and inspire those fathers, children, and families who are lost? Or does it even matter?
