Ronald Preston Clark is a Hampton University graduate, University of San Diego M.Ed. student and a RISE San Diego Urban Leadership Fellow. Born and raised in San Diego, Clark fights for healthy spaces for black men - young and old - to express themselves emotionally. A witness to the variances of cisgender male and female relationships among friends and family, Clark spent his 20s defining masculinity for himself in the same misogynistic environment in which many of our men grow up. His experience has charged him to lead others through literacy, education and self-consciousness.
