Special guests, psychotherapist DR GERALD HASSELL, author of The Impact of Father Absence on African American Boys, and Karate master teacher, DONALD ATCHISON, drops by to discuss how society views Black fathers. Currently, 43% of BLACK MEN live at home with their children 18 and under. Has the AFRICAN AMERICAN community normalized BLACK FATHERS raising children from outside the home?  What has been the overall effect on the BLACK COMMUNITY since this trend started in the 1970s? Are there any positive BLACK FATHER roles depicted in the media?  Does the marketing for recent movies such as THE WOMAN KING or the upcoming BLACK PANTHER II add to the erasure of strong BLACK FATHERS from society?  MENTAL DIALOGUE asking the question America's afraid to ask. ALL I ASK IS THAT YOU THINK
