Today, some 64 percent of African-American children live in single-family homes in Georgia. The same is true of just 24 percent of white children and 39 percent of Hispanic children, according to the U.S. Census Bureau and National Kids Count. Dr. Gregory Farngalo and his wife Deborah Farngalo want to see fathers more involved, an issue that has gotten attention nationally thanks in part to President Barack Obama speaking about it.
