Stay in the know about new episodes and updates.
Our show came to life in response to the bestselling book of the same name. Eddie K. Wright’s memoir details the controversial experience of being the young black father of a son who would grow up to be the gayest man on the planet! His “NO SON OF MINE!!” street gangster mentality evolves during his difficult life journey coming to realize that his responsibility as a loving father didn’t change just because his son is gay. Voice for the Silent Fathers talk radio hopes to expand beyond the delicate father/son issues, so implicitly captured in his writings. We will discuss a broad spectrum of societal issues beyond the "no son of mine" father of a gay man experience. We want to get to the real substance of human conflict which is our inability to accept and appreciate difference. We want to open the lines of communication that will offer an opportunity to consider acceptance in a way that extends grace, honor, support and recognition. Understanding that when we are ungrateful, we are critical, blaming, and we use forms of rejection. We hope to use Eddies' experience of coming to the acceptance of his son as a way to provide hope for healing which is a more practical response to conflict that allows dignity, respect, and honor which overcomes criticism, blame, bigotry, and ultimately rejection. Topics will focus on breaking down the communication barriers that have repeatedly destroyed familial relationships. We will highlight how these broken relationships relate to torn relationships throughout our communities and try to enable the listeners with the internal power to be the change that is needed.
