Our Favorite Black TV and Movie Dads

It's Father's Day, and it's time for all of us Daddy's girls and boys to celebrate the man that was partly responsible for our place in this world.

While Dad may not have been the one to mend your broken hearts and scrapes he likely was the one to teach you how to ride a bike, throw a baseball, and to tearfully give you away on your wedding day.

These great TV and movie Dads remind us of all the beautiful memories we share with our pops. Sometimes we secretly wish they could be our fathers.
