“Dad, why do you take me to protests so much?”

When 9-year-old Aidan Sykes sat down to interview his dad, Albert Sykes, he had some serious questions to ask. Together, they talked about how race and gender influence the way Albert takes on his role as a father.

In 2015, 9-year-old Aidan Sykes came to StoryCorps in Jackson, Mississippi, to ask his father, Albert, a few important questions.

Albert and Aidan’s story is one in a series of real-life stories presented by StoryCorps and Upworthy reminding us #WhoWeAre—everyday Americans speaking to our best selves.
