In 2010, former gang leader turned community activist Big Mike Cummings asked UCLA gang expert Jorja Leap to co-lead a group of men who are struggling to be better fathers despite having grown up fatherless. These men, black and Latino, teenagers to men in their 50s, most formerly incarcerated, are trying to build their identities as fathers, connect with their children, and heal their community. Project Fatherhood follows the lives of the men who meet each week as they struggle with the pain of not having had a father, the chronic pressures of poverty and unemployment, and the unquenchable desire to do better and provide more for the next generation. Through immersion into the lived experiences of those struggling to overcome their circumstances, Jorja Leap provides not only dramatic stories of fathers trying to do the right thing, but a larger sociological portrait of how institutional injustices become manifest in the lives of ordinary people. And while she provides no silver-bullet policy prescription, readers witness real movement towards solutions as the men find support in each other, and in their shared goal of healing their families and keeping their children out of the "cradle to prison pipeline."
