In commemoration of Father's Day, columnist for The Washington Post and BrotherSpeak co-producer Rahiel Tesfamariam hosted a special conversation on Google Hangout about what fatherhood means to a range of black men.
The panel included two men interviewed for the BrotherSpeak video series: former NBA forward/center Etan Thomas (BrotherSpeak: Fear) and Keith Benjamin, a Washington, DC social activist (BrotherSpeak: Love).
We also heard from two Urban Cusp writers and Washington Post editor/ BrotherSpeak co-producer Chris Jenkins who participated in the BrotherSpeak twitter chats. The result was a 30 minute honest thoughtful dialouge with five black men who spoke honestly about being a father and/or being a son.
We discussed what feelings and emotions came up for the panelists this Father’s Day. Some discussed gratitude. Others discussed responsibility and humility.
