We had an outstanding time at the 2nd annual Black Daddies Club Family Picinic on August 13, 2011. During the picnic, there was a panel discussion held. The guests included: Rathika Sitsabaiesan (New Democratic Party Minister of Parliament in Ottawa, MP, Scarborough- Rouge River - Ontario, youngest member of Parliament in the GTA), Yosief Mehari (Pardons Advisor - John Howard Society),Nigel Barriffe (educator, member of The Good Jobs For All coalition - and Paul Greene (educator). We had the privilege of acting as the moderator for this event. The guests and the audience take part in a great discussion about civic engagement, Blacks and voting, investing in Black youth, Blacks and the education system and the disconnect between Black youth and their parents. We would like to apologize for the sound quality. The sound quality is not 100% because the discussion was being broadcast live throughout the park that the picnic was being held at. We have done our best on improving this broadcast but we felt that it was important for our audience to hear this discussion. We would like to thank the Black Daddies Club for putting on this special day. For more information of the Black Daddies Club, go to: (Web) (Facebook) @BlkDaddiesClub (Twitter) (Eamil)
