Tonight on Full Circle with Father’s Day coming we wanted to celebrate the beloved Father figures in our lives. We know that fathering is nuanced, its realities don’t always match the sugar coated Hallmark holiday. On tonight’s show we will hear an excerpt from “An Open Love Letter to Black Fathers” . We’ll hear poetry and commentaries from sons about their fathers, and our own Cat Petru interviews her father in studio.
