“A World of Good Intentions”

My new piece at Acculturated, continuing the marriage & family series with a look at What It Means to Be Daddy: Fatherhood for Black Men Living Away from Their Children and Between Two Worlds: The Inner Lives of Children of Divorce. This is a piece where I really felt the word-count constraints. You guys should absolutely pick up these books, since I know I didn’t do them justice.
