What People are Saying About This

Bette Dickerson

This book demonstrates the gap in positive procreative stories of responsible Black fathers as opposed to a deficit-based model and invites more research on Black fathers 'doing the well' for Black families and children. Comprehensive, largely qualitative snapshots provide the diverse picture of what fathering in Black communities looks like.
