Brother to Brother: Marcus Garvey and the "Father Wound"

I'm very excited about the Brother to Brother program that has been spearheaded by Professor Isabel Rodriguez-Dehmer in College Prep, North Campus, Miami Dade College.

Professor Rodriguez-Dehmer has invited me to speak to her students, a group of young, Black males, who have been taking classes at the Carrie P. Meek Entrepreneurial Education Center in Liberty City.

Our discussion will include excerpts from Brother to Brother along with some of my short stories in Who's Your Daddy?, and we will think about the following questions:

  1. If you had a chance to speak to the young Black middle school student what would you say about having goals and dreams?
  2. "It’s hard to choose a pathway in life until you have a value system in place"   What do you value?
  3. Question yourself. Does your value system lift you and the world up, or bring you down?
  4. What is the "father wound"? How does the "father wound" affect the characters in Brother to Brother and Who's Your Daddy?
  5. Who was Marcus Garvey?
  6. What are some of the values that Garvey espoused?
