Check this out: TED Talk – Angela Patton: A father-daughter dance … in prison

I loved this TED Talk from Angela Patton. Angela runs Camp Diva, which is a summer camp for “at-promise” girls ages 11 – 17 of African descent. Her aim through this camp is to keep them safe and instill in them values to prepare them for womanhood.

In this talk, Angela talks about the special bond between a father and daughter and about how prison bars shouldn’t have to destroy that bond. She says something beautiful at the end of her talk: “Because a father is locked in does not mean he should be locked out of his daughter’s life.”

Really beautiful talk! Thank you for your inspiration, Angela!
