Black Fatherhood: Reconnecting with Our Legacy

Black Fatherhood: Reconnecting With Our Legacy

How was your Father’s Day? Hope it was as good as mine. I was blessed to enjoy good food, good company, excellent conversation, and good liquor. Father’s Day is one of those holidays on which I get to drink the good stuff. Strictly top shelf. None of that whatever’s on sale for me.

Anyway, as your day winds down, take a look at this promotional clip for the upcoming documentary Black Fatherhood: Reconnecting with Our Legacy based on the book by the same title written by Dana Ross. While most documentaries focus on the deficits of Black men, Black Fatherhood explores Black manhood and fatherhood from a more positive perspective.

Beginning with a exploration of the historical legacy and roles of Black fathers, the documentary seeks to dispel the many myths of Black fathers as wholly non-existent and/or dysfunctional. It also enters into a discussion of the many circumstances and impediments to Black families and Black fathers wrought through government institutions and policies.

This one is a must see. So loosen your belt and take a look see.

Thanks for posting this. I'll be looking forward to checking this out when it is released.

I wrote about this today and I do believe that much of the negative we hear is part of a bigger design.

I never actually said that in the post but questioned it. I'm hoping people may pick up on what I'm speaking out about.

I'm linking this post on mine.
