Deep hearty voices of an all-men's choir lifted the spirits of nearly 100 people gathered at St. John AME Church in West Baltimore yesterday to celebrate Father's Day and the endurance of African American men.Some 30 fathers who attended the ceremony were given boutonnieres and honored by Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke for commitment to their families, communities and God."Those who have counted us out are wrong," said the Rev. Maurice Wilson. "Those who call us an endangered species are wrong. There are many of us who have not abandoned our families -- who cook food for our kids and work day in and day out to support them."
