With there being such a dire need for leadership within and beyond urban communities and families, Darryl Green has been a passionate leader about his work with African-American men of color. His clarion call for accountability, wholeness, and authenticity has sounded throughout the Baltimore City and the surrounding vicinity. As I am a professor at Morgan State University and a community pastor in the Baltimore City region, I have seen his consistency as a student, practitioner, and community activist as he has totally embodied the recent theme around the country that “Black lives really Matter”. His work has spawned well over a decade in our community to the degree that it has been the impetus for our research team’s recent research and published article “Merging Community and Faith-based organizations to Empower African-American Men”. I am excited that his work continues!
