The CPMS is designed to send children to college, and since its inception, 100% of its students have gone on to four year colleges. Dr. Perry is also an author of best selling books Man Up! and Push Has Come to Shove, a CNN education contributor, a columnist for ESSENCE magazine, and a highly sought after speaker for colleges and education forums around the country.
Dr. Perry and I discussed how our young men are living without hearing the words “I Love You” in their lives. He shared how men need to get back into their sons lives and mother should stop treating their sons like boyfriends and get their own man. Dr. Perry said if we don’t help our young sons/men they will become endangered species.
