Editorial Reviews

Review

The black community needs this book!"—John Hope Franklin



This important book counters the media's image of absentee dads and instead gives readers a striking depiction of Black fathers who sacrifice and struggle to carve out a future for their children. With its black-and-white photographs and vignettes from different generations of African-American dads, this photo-essay is a much-needed tribute to the enduring spirit of Black fatherhood."—Ebony

From the Back Cover

The father is often perceived as someone absent from the African American family, though the reasons for this perception vary. This book shows another side to that image, a positive one depicting black men who are supportive and nurturing parents. To reveal and celebrate this less often recognized parent, Carole Patterson has spent several years crossing the continent to interview and photograph responsible black fathers. Photographer Anthony Barboza has also contributed imagery. These portraits - young fathers, older fathers, a great-grandfather, fathers on different levels of the economic ladder - provide valuable insight into American culture. And because of their humanitarian scope, they deliver an important message to everyone, especially young people, about parenthood and the obligations and responsibilities attached to it. In his introduction, Arvarh E. Strickland surveys the history of the African American family, beginning with the separation inherent in slavery. Then, Minion KC Morrison offers a more personal view of image making and the creation of identity.
