As we wrap up the month of June and the celebration of fathers and Father's Day, we speak with Ron Adams, Jr., who is a study in contrasts. Free-spirited, yet a deep thinker with a passion for everything that shares the history of the black community, he is also a leader of men, yet willing to listen and follow the leadership of black youth growing to into their identities. Ron is also a father and former track star who was on his way to the Olympics, when he developed rheumatoid arthritis. Ron will share inspiring stories behind his challenges and victories as a father, an African American community advocate and a former athlete--and how it all ties together in his life, his daughter's life and his pride in his community.
