#MyBlackFather Dispels Stereotype Of Absent Fathers In The Black Community

touchthaskye/Twitter

The media's attack on the image of black fatherhood is nothing new.

In response to reports about the myth surrounding black fatherhood, we wanted to share family photos that display love and integrity of devoted fathers in the black community. Our Black Voices Twitter callout asked readers to submit photos using the hashtag #MyBlackFather. And what we got in response was a cargo of heartwarming pictures of the black men that raised our readers.

Want to be a part of the lovefest? It’s not too late! Just tweet us a photo of your father using #MyBlackFather and we’ll continue to update the story with new submissions. @YyoWIFEbaldTHO via Twitter @broom_jeremy via Twitter @hazel_eyedQT via Twitter @AlanaPR_Marie via Twitter @30SomethingB via Twitter @MooreLeya via Twitter @Kwakualston via Twitter @ill_academic via Twitter @kacinda via Twitter @brrrucefloyd via Twitter @AprilHollowayJD via Twitter @corrieshull via Twitter @aminnathari via Twitter @1978_Artis via Twitter @summergory via Twitter @jasdubois via Twitter @DeChynaDoll via Twitter @shannon1_daniel via Twitter @touchthaskye via Twitter @TiffaniB_ via Twitter @_BrookieB_ via Twitter @ArthurAnthony4 via Twitter @put_up_or_shtup via Twitter @GraceEmbodied via Twitter @GraceEmbodied via Twitter @Thatsuitsyou via Twitter @AlanaPR_Marie via Twitter @Adub4spirit via Twitter @ohsephora via Twitter
