This dignified process symbolizes the significance of the male figure in various communities. This month's podcast will address fatherhood, the longest-running African American holiday, Juneteenth, and Men mental health and sports. Juneteenth commemorates the official freedom of slavery. As for men and mental health, the two topics continue to remain at contrasting odds. Men have been categorized under the counseling-resistant population.
