Black fathers do exist! The media focuses on the absent Black father and usually portrays Black fathers in a negative light. We partnered with Divergent Media to show the world that Black fathers are not absent. There are plenty of Black men that play an active role in their children’s lives. My husband is one of them. He has always been there for his girls and always will. He is involved in everything they do and wants to be there every step of the way as he should be. His role in our children’s lives is just as important as mine. Sometimes fathers get the short end of the stick like the mothers are the only ones that truly matter, but that’s not true. Our Black fathers are needed. We appreciate all the Black fathers out there and want to change the way the world looks at you.
In honor of Father’s Day, let’s show the world that black fathers do exist! Let’s flood everyone’s timeline with stories, photos, and videos using the hashtag #BlackFathersDay. Also search the hashtag and give those that are using it some love. Let’s support this Black Father’s Day campaign and make it a huge success! Read more about the campaign HERE.
