Earlier this month, 1999 OSI Community Fellow David Miller traveled to Toronto to speak as part of a panel called “What are Black Fathers Teaching Their Sons About Love?” at the Journey to Black Liberation Symposium.
“When you think about the continued assault as it relates to white supremacy and racism, this notion of celebrating and elevating Black love is critical to our ultimate survival,” Miller says in a video posted by the Huffington Post.
As part of his Fellowship, Miller created the Dare to Be King Curriculum, a comprehensive system for adolescent African American males that addresses anger, impulse control, and decision making. Last month, Dare to Be King partnered with Baltimore City Schools and the Center for Urban Families (headed and founded by Joe Jones, vice-chair of OSI-Baltimore’s Advisory Board) on the daylong Fatherhood Engagement Summit at Frederick Douglass High School.
Miller is part of the OSI Community Fellows’ Strategic Advisory Group, which is looking to expand the power of the Fellows Network.
