Editorial Reviews


"There is a need for this text and many more like it that can shed a positive light on the role the Black father plays. ... [The book] is well organized by chapter and section and allows the reader to choose the topic that most interests them. The stories contained in the text are riveting and thought provoking. Some will make you laugh, while still others will make you cry. Anyone teaching the subject of Black families should read this book." - Eva M. Starner, Oakwood University, USA, in Network

"By and large, Black Fathers, much like the earlier edition, is a tremendous contribution to the literature on African American men. The book easily engages and challenges the reader to expand his or her understanding of this demographic group..." - Chammie Austin, St. Louis University, USA in PsycCRITIQUES

"An important contribution to the true image of black fathers in America... I enthusiastically endorse this book... It provides a broad integrated perspective that combines relevant theory and research... I am certain that it will be used in many college and university courses." - Robert L. Williams, Washington University, USA
