“You must learn to knock, knock yourself! We are not our father’s choices!”
A powerful spoken word poem via Daniel Beatty from his play Emergen-see. Powerful for any boy who ever grew up to be a man without the strong hand of his father helping him learn how to knock, knock! I too missed out on learning how to shave, how to dribble, how to talk to the ladies and how to walk like a god from my papa—luckily my mom found lots of willing mentors and father figures who were able to be there for you some of the time.
Bonus, another with great intro at Kennedy Center:
