In an effort to shift the dialogue about Black fatherhood in America, 20 women wrestle with the much maligned image of the Black dad and shed light on the touching relationships they have with the dynamic fathers in their lives in the acclaimed anthology, Bet on Black: African-American Women Celebrate Fatherhood in the Age of Barack Obama. The book, which has garnered national attention, was released October 8.
The anthology, inspired by President Barack Obama’s commitment to encouraging and supporting responsible fathers by creating the President’s Fatherhood and Mentoring Initiative, is a standout among the trove of songs, movies and books about motherhood. Too often in popular culture, Black fathers are either absent or characterized as deadbeat sperm donors who have little regard for the families they leave in their wake. Bet on Black shatters these stereotypes and is sure to shift the conversation about what it means to be a Black father in America.
