Share your Story
The media loves to focus only on the negative stories about Black fathers in this world and we want to change that. We are seeking to collect YOUR stories about Black fathers and sons, particularly about how your father impacted you in a positive or affirming way. Even if your biological father wasn't present in your life - you can tell a story about a stepfather, father figure, mentor, or another man who stepped into your life and influenced you in a positive way. Submit your story below, and don't hold back - give these men as much praise as you want! This is your opportunity to acknowledge the male figures in your life for all the good they have done - and we'll feature your stories in our social media blogs and for an upcoming follow-up book to Standing on His Shoulders. Let that father or father figure know how much you appreciate what they do for you every day!
