So, I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and being in relationship with Emmanuel Acquaah for almost 8 years now. He is husband to my little sister, uncle to my two daughters, and father to my precious nephew.
But here’s the thing – I have learned more about Emmanuel in the past 24 hours, than I have in all the years prior. Along with several other 1st generation Americans, he has courageously presented part of his story on a podcast called, 1stGens. You see, Emmanuel was born in Ghana, and grew up in Canada until his family moved to Greensboro, NC at the start of middle school.
In this podcast, Uncle E shares his perspective on fatherhood, race and ethnicity, gender roles, the importance of self-awareness, and personal growth.
