Black, strong, and tired.

For too long, many have had low expectations for what the Black father's all about. With a reputation driven by primetime and headlines, few have the conversations needed to help shift the perspective.

In Black Dad Matters, dad-blogger-turned-author Casey Palmer relies on his experiences and those of dozens of other dads to show that diversity's more than skin deep. Despite a world that often wants to paint Black dads with a single brush, no two dads are alike, and they're more than any one definition could ever do justice. Single dads. Married dads. Adoptive dads and stepdads. Polyamorous dads. LGBTQ+ dads. And that only scratches the surface.

If you want to know what Black fatherhood's really about, you've come to the right place.
