The Fatherhood Manologues
Fatherhood Manologues is an exhilarating collection of stories written and performed by fathers from our community. Whether touching on being a father, being fathered, the role of a father in the family, absent fathers, or the expectations fathers face, each story is touching, insightful, funny, and emotional. Asylum Hill Congregational Church is proud to partner with My People Community Services to celebrate fatherhood.
Following the presentation, there will be an open forum to discuss how the ideas put forth by this performance and the principles of the Manhood Tree can be put forward into the Asylum Hill neighborhood.
Fatherhood Manologues is conceived by My People Community Services Executive Director and Founder Abdul-Rahmann I. Muhammad. The cast of four storytellers and fathers — Mr. Muhammad, Demetrius Chamblee, Malik S. Champlain and Jesse White III — all developed their stories through participation in My People Community Services’ The Manhood Tree Program.
We invite you to come, reconnect, repair broken relationships, or reflect on the fathers in your life.
