Effective Black Outreach: How the 1970s and 80s Messaging Regarding Black Fatherhood is Playing Out Again in the 2020s and Encouraging More Black Single Motherhood
I’d like to begin this lesson with a story about my paternal grandmother, Earnestine Killings. I never met her because she passed away before I was born, but Dad often shared wonderful stories about her.
He told me that growing up, our elders had specific rules when it came to sex and pregnancy. Simply put, if one of her sons got a girl pregnant, that son MUST marry the girl.
Perhaps you’re familiar with these types of “shot gun” weddings, too. But it’s interesting to note how social norms morphed over time as our communities became more aligned with Progressive messaging and policy.

Black Conservative Thought: Our Black Ancestors Were Preaching to Your Republican Ancestors Using the Same Fire We Flex Today
Solomon once said, “There is nothing new under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 1:9).
As I examine Black History from the lens of Conscious Conservatism, I find his proverb to be true.
There is nothing new under the Republican Party’s sun, for what is today has been yesterday.
And what will be tomorrow is contingent upon what happens now.
