The importance of fathers featuring Correctional Officer Calvin Williams

TEDx Ironwood State Prison

Published on Jun 2, 2014

Single father of 3 children, Correctional Officer Calvin Williams of Ironwood State Prison speaks about the importance of being a father.

A powerful five-minute video of correctional officer Calvin Williams speaking at a TEDx event held inside a prison about the importance of fathers. What the National Fatherhood Initiative found compelling about the video is not only Calvin's message about how important his role is as a father but the imagery of him delivering the message in his uniform and in a prison.
The imagery creates a stark contrast between the important, positive message Calvin delivers and the view many people have of correctional officers as tough, demanding, and harsh.
