Extended cut: Evrod Cassimy talks with fathers on raising Black sons in America
It’s difficult watching what’s happened to Black men in our country. Many young Black men are taught by their parents how some people in the world might view them and the things they should do in hopes of staying safe. Local 4′s Evrod Cassimy sat down with three Black fathers about how and when they have this difficult conversation with their sons. Watch the full extended cut of the interview in the video player above. Watch Local 4′s ‘Spirit of Detroit: Fulfilling the Dream’ Special live here at 10 p.m. Tuesday, where we continue the discussion on racism in America.

What better time to show the fathers we love how much they mean than on Father’s Day? It’s been an interesting year, and although some of the country is reopening, many people are still staying home to stay safe. Because of that, this year might be a little different than others -- as far as the celebrations go -- but that doesn’t make it any less important. We’d love to catch a glimpse into your special day.
