WHY FATHERS CRY: One Year Later Special

Why Fathers Cry Podcast with Kwame Alexander

It’s amazing what can happen in a year, and Kwame Alexander can speak to that firsthand, with deep heart. In Part I of the Why Fathers Cry: One Year Later special, Kwame reveals how his life has changed and what he’s learned since the May 2023 release of his memoir, Why Fathers Cry at Night.

The Why Fathers Cry podcast has always featured Kwame in conversation with other men – fathers, sons, husbands, partners. For this one year later special, we’re getting the female perspective, as Kwame is joined by two dear friends and fellow writers, Nikki Shannon Smith and Tinesha Davis. Don’t miss this candid roundtable that asks – and answers – ALL of the questions, from choices made and lessons learned, to how we grow and why we love.
