During Black History Month, I participated as a panelist in the 2021 Winter’s Black History Month Celebration. Many myths and stereotypes would lead the general population to believe Black Fathers neglect our families and diminish our value. During this panel discussion, we dispel those Black Father myths and stereotypes.
Each of us on the panel took the time to share our heart, and the true character and identity of the Black Father.
I’m sure there’s a lot more that I can write about who we are. However, I’ll let our voices speak to the importance of The Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity.
Before you listen, take a moment to read and reflect on my haiku called “Black Fatherhood” that I wrote for you.
