Wake Up With WURD‘s Solomon Jones (and his son!) appeared on a recent edition of ABC’s Nightline titled Two Fathers, Two Sons, Two Different Conversations on Race. It was an excellent follow-up to Solomon’s recent article about the pain and fear many Black fathers feel about the safety of their sons — not just in the wake of Ferguson, but all the time.
