Single mothers, according to most recent statistics, are increasingly raising their children alone, but in no race or culture is this more prevalent than with African Americans. Left to themselves, African American mothers are having to nurture, provide for and protect their families with little to no support from their children’s fathers. Statistics further show that black men are in large part either choosing not to become fathers or abandoning their parental responsibilities altogether. What have been the consequences of this on the family, society, the world, and even the future of the race? Our guest today is Dr. Nathaniel Wilson, founder and owner of the Atlanta Center for Family Wellness in Atlanta, Georgia. He is a clinical psychologist and author of a children’s book series called “I’m Okay.” His organization B.E.M.E. seeks to empower young African American males to achieve family, emotional, academic and financial success.
