This Friday, MPR News host Kerri Miller will talk with activist and author Frederick Joseph about his new book, “Patriarchy Blues.” It examines the culture of masculinity through the lens of a Black man.
Ashley C. Ford’s debut memoir, “Somebody’s Daughter,” also looks at the racial divides in America, by telling her own story of growing up as a Black girl in Indiana with a single mother, an absent father and a heavy family secret.
Ford joined Miller in July 2021 to talk about her book and the complexities of childhood, forgiveness and healing. Enjoy this interview from the archive as an appetizer for the upcoming conversation with Joseph.
