Flashpoint: Celebrating Juneteenth, and championing Black fatherhood and mental health Bridging Philly

    • Government

This week, Flashpoint discusses Juneteenth becoming a federal holiday. What does this mean for African Americans, and how did 2020’s racial reckoning play a role in Juneteenth's emergence in American society? KYW’s Shara Dae Howard speaks with Vashti Dubois, founder of The Colored Girls Museum in Germantown.
It’s also Father’s Day weekend, and our panel talks about effective tools and strategies to champion Black fatherhood and promote the importance of men and dads taking care of their mental health. Joel Austin, the founder of Daddy University, Chimere Holmes of Be Ye Renewed Counseling, and Ihsan Hines of My Brother’s Keeper Cares share their perspectives and experiences with Black fatherhood.
The Philly Rising Changemaker of the week presented by Patriot Homecare is Black Men Heal, a local organization on a mission to provide access to mental health, education, and community resources to men of color, and remove the stigma surrounding Black men and their mental health.
Flashpoint is sponsored by the Gift of Life Donor Program.
