There is a high number of unmarried black men. What is the cause of this disparity and is there someone to blame for this. We have all heard the saying ” A good man is hard to find”. But is that saying true or have we made it harder for good men to be seen and get married. What is hindering men from getting married and what can be done to see this turn around in the African-American community. Join me and my special guest Taylor Hinton, Broderick Walton, Eddie Conner, and Eric Fondren as we discuss the issue “Why Aren’t Black Men Getting Married”
