Overview

This book and accompanying documentary illustrates despite mounds of derogatory statistics regarding Black men in their roles as fathers, there is a strong legacy of Black men (from slavery to the present) who were/are very proactive fathers.

Filmmaker/Author Dana Ross utilizes her own

family history, research and interviews with hundreds of Black fathers, Educators and Historians such as Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu and Dr. Ira Berlin, to explore Black men in their roles as fathers from their time of enslavement to the present.

In order to reconnect with this legacy, the author unmasks the many extraneous circumstances Black fathers face to clearly explore and define what can be done to overcome these circumstances to keep the legacy alive and positive for future generations of Black fathers.

Both the book and documentary lifts the voices of Black fathers and gives an in depth look into their hearts and souls as they speak on parenting, education, spirituality, the judicial system and racism.

I attended a book signing and answer/question series with the author of this book. The book includes a wealth of information that I never knew about Black fathers during slavery. What's more impressive is the research and interviews with fathers today. This book is a must read and the author is an excellent speaker!!

This book should be in all libraries. The perspective given in this work is long overdue.
