In honor of Father’s Day, FunTimes Magazine asked 10 of the Philadelphia region’s influential men to share the stories of their lives, and ponder intersectionality around Black men’s issues. The event will be held at the Pyramid Club, Fairmount Room, 1735 Market St Fl 52; 5:00 PM – 6:30 PM, Friday, June 23.

Through a series of questions, these men reflected on their ambitions and obstacles, described discoveries they made as Black men, how they pushed through tough times. Most inspiringly, they relayed soul-restoring stories about Black family life and love.

These real-life sentiments resonate the continued concerns for equality among all men.
The NJ/Philadelphia region men recognized are –
Dr. Eric Edi Executive Director of Africom-Philly, the Coalition of African and Caribbean Immigrant Communities (AFRICOM)
Michael A. Rashid President, Michael A. Rashid & Associates, LLC.
Foster Child Musician with accomplishments in writing, producing, and performing on multiple records, and a production and promotion company.
