Dr. Alex Gee continues his discussion of fatherhood by talking with two experts and scholars in family life, Dr. Chris Bass and Dr. Gerry White. Their conversation explores the way the media and society conveys Black identity through generations, the importance of reconciling with father’s, and mentoring children. Dr. Bass and Dr. White focus on the health of father’s as they raise and set the example for their children. Broken father’s will produce broken children if a healthy identity is not developed early.
