AAFCA Roundtable Series: a chat with Dondre Whitfield

Those of us not ashamed to age ourselves will remember Dondre Whitfield as Vanessa Huxtable’s teenage love interest, Robert, from “The Cosby Show.” And more recently, he was Charlie Bordelon’s boo, Remy Newell, on the OWN hit show “Queen Sugar.” But most importantly, according to Whitfield, he is a man on a mission to mentor, guide, and hold himself as well as males of all ages accountable as they progress on their respective journeys through manhood.

The author of the new book Male vs. Man: How to Honor Women, Teach Children, and Elevate Men to Change the World, Whitfield shares personal reflections and anecdotes, and provides insight on what he believes is the truest indicator of someone operating fully in his manhood – the ability to serve others.

Whitfield fielded questions from and discussed his book with fellow AAFCA members and I, during my very first virtual roundtable with the group, a couple of weeks ago. You can watch a snippet below, and view the entire video on The AAFCA Channel on YouTube here.

Male vs. Man: How to Honor Women, Teach Children, and Elevate Men to Change the World is available at several retailers including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books A Million. Additional information, including purchasing, is available at the official website here.

Until next thought, Thomasena
