The Local Take: Real Dads Read

Feb 25, 2017

This week on The Local Take we speak with Kenneth Braswell from Fathers Incorporated about their new initiative REAL DADS READ. Research shows that when fathers participate in their children's education, helping with homework, their grades and test scores increase. Fathers play a critical role in the development of  literacy when they model the importance of reading and sharing stories.  

Braswell points out that we have mp3 children living with 8-Track parents and that technology can be challenging.  

PNC Bank and Jazz 91.9 WCLK celebrate Atlanta's African American Business Leaders--Henry “Hank” James Thomas was born on August 29, 1941 in Jacksonville, Florida. He spent most of his childhood in St. Augustine. As a student at Howard University, Hank Thomas joined the first Freedom Rider group on May 4, 1961. On Mothers Day, when the  bus Thomas was riding on reached Anniston, Alabama, it was set on fire by the Ku Klux Klan. Ten days later Thomas rode from Montgomery to Jackson, Mississippi. There he was incarcerated at the notorious, Parchman State Prison Farm.
