Show #105 - The Unheard Melodies: Exploring the Scarcity of Songs about Black Fathers

We’re back after a week off! In this thought-provoking podcast episode, we delve into a significant issue: the scarcity of songs about Black fathers. As the United States recently celebrated Father's Day, we couldn't help but notice the absence of such musical tributes.

Dr. Ed Garnes joins us as we unravel this phenomenon, analyze its underlying causes, and discuss actionable steps towards rectifying this disparity. Tune in to gain insights and be part of the movement for change.
