Letter to My Father, Letter to My Son

Online https://forms.gle/vVPL2AQF2cGz3bTS6, Philadelphia

For Father's Day, we celebrate the unbreakable bonds that exist with our BIPOC fathers and sons.  Back by popular demand, David Acosta returns to direct BEyond Expectations: Letter to My Father, Letter to My Son - Evolutions with new stories that feature these powerful bonds. News anchor, Bill Anderson, reflects on the recent loss of his father, radio icon, Cody Anderson, while activist and mother Kimberly Kamara shares the loss of her black son in a senseless tragedy.  Eric "Shomari" Grimes, Dr. H. Bernard Hall, Rafael Collazo, and Raymond Zhang are leaders who join in to honor what is too often overlooked - the power of fathers and sons of color relationships.  Musical accompaniment will be provided by Eric Wortham. These stories are particularly poignant as there is a racial reckoning occurring within the United States following the murder of George Floyd and other men of color. These stories of fathers and sons resonate as they point to the enduring love and resilience found in these familial ties.  This event is FREE to the public. In collaboration with the City of Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services Engaging Males of Color Initiative Directed by David Acosta Produced by Jame Robinson/PWPVideo BEyond Expectations builds community and promotes mental wellness through the unique and shared experiences of men of color throughout the Philadelphia region.
