Damario Solomon-Simmons isn’t a man of talk. Sure, he can tell you a few things that will get your attention, including the fact that black males are twenty times more likely to go to prison when they don’t have a father’s guidance.

Damario is getting together with several other black men to put together a Fatherhood weekend for both young boys and their parents to help the black community reclaim the importance of fatherhood.
