Listen as two members of my tribe talk about their concerns raising Black sons in America. Maureen Greene-James and Toni Boyd both have sons in college, they are both 20 years old and away from home. I also have a 20-year-old son who attended technical college and is working in his field.

We discuss the fear that grips us when we can't reach them right away on the phone or when they are away from home longer than expected. Hear what it's like to be the mom of a Black son in America, and why we worry so much about our young men.
