I am one of the contributing authors for “The Black Father Perspective.” As I write this post, the book is #1 on the Hot New Release ranking on Amazon.com and on the bestseller list in 3 categories (Family Health, Parenting Morals & Responsibility, Step-parenting & Blended Families).
With heartbreaking headlines everyday surrounding the plight of our black men, this work is timely and necessary.
Black fathers play a pivotal role in the lives of our black children. According to the 2011 U.S. Census, nearly 2 in 3 (64%) African American children live in father-absent homes. However, we know that all fathers are not absent. Many of them are very present and we want to hear what they have to say about parenting.
