Every year Mother’s Day is a major celebration and while we agree our mothers should be celebrated, but we don’t get to see the positive images in media of fatherhood, especially Black Fatherhood. While absentee Black Fathers is a problem in the Black Community, there are so many Black Fathers that hold it down, raise their children and in many cases, other men’s children. So, over the upcoming week, leading into Father’s Day, Black Westchester Magazine will be promoting and showcasing Black Fatherhood. Join us as we celebrate the Black Fathers who defy and dispel the media portrayal of Black Fatherhood.
We started a new section titled Black Fathers, click the link to check out all of our stories, interviews, articles
We start the week off with a segment of the current affairs and political commentary television program produced by MSNBC and hosted by African-American author and academic Melissa Harris-Perry from 2012 to 2016. On November 30, 2014, writer and photographer Marcus Franklin joins Melissa Perry-Harris to discuss, Black Fathers.
