Being a Black Father

February 28, 2015 With Leonard Pitts

Leonard Pitts, columnist who won the Pulitzer Prize a few years ago, joined us in 2006 to discuss his then just-published book titled “Becoming Dad: Black Men and the Journey to Fatherhood.” ┬áHe deals here with problems which have persisted: how to prepare a black child for contacts with police; the effects of feminist theory upon black fatherhood; absent-father black families as a source of social pathology and as a source of suffering for the father himself. Strong stuff, strongly articulated!
