Black by Popular Demand – Activist by Choice

Happy Father’s Day

Along with my two brothers, I was lucky enough to have a father who never was tied to any ideas of machismo, a man who showed me that manhood lies in the self-reliant capability of adulthood, not in the physical power of muscle, and taught me that that it is appropriate for a man to feel and express emotions and love, to speak my mind and listen to the perspectives of others, to be forceful in support of my ideals and gentle in my treatment of others, and of course, to cook.

Happy Father’s Day, and sorry I couldn’t find a more recent photo!
