The Challenge with Black Men and Family
Session Date and Time
The attack on the patriarchal family that we are witnessing today, does not diminish the tremendous value and importance the role of a father play in the lives of their wives and children. The culture shift influences unproductive attitudes toward women, work, entitlement, authority, sex and violence that have proven counterproductive, inhibiting the development of the man that would lead his family. Truly the absence of men in the lives of their children has resulted in great devastation on personal and societal values.
