As Father’s Day approaches, the Black/African community in the Diaspora particularly, gears up once again for the yearly conversation…  today it’s primarily in the form of tweets and Facebook postings (for at least a weekend)… about the importance of Black fathers and fatherhood in general.

I will share a number of articles and videos which I had saved to set the stage for this day of honour. I will drop a post on or around Sunday, to comment on the materials below, as well as share what I have learnt in my experiences as a father. Until then:

1. The trouble with a great father

2. The African American Black Man: The New Neanderthal?
