To celebrate Black History Month, Our Black Heritage is sharing the stories of caring fathers who are making LIVING HISTORY by turning the tide against our national crisis of father absence. While Our Black Heritage is a site devoted to historical documents, our affiliation with the Fatherhood Educational Institute and President Obama has incited us to take a look at the important trends occurring in African-American history AS IT HAPPENS TODAY. Principal among these, from our point of view, the fight to establish numerous responsible and loving black male role models in African-American communities so that children have father figures that they can look up to.
The second story of we feature this month is that of site moderator Jennifer Whiteside, who immigrated to the United States from a difficult life in Trinidad to discover a new model of fatherhood embodied by her second husband. You can read her story here: http://ourblackheritage.com/index.php/daddies-and-daughters/
WE WANT TO HEAR YOUR STORY ABOUT A CARING DAD. Submit it to Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
