About New Black Father

Welcome to our African-American fatherhood blog!

We are a group of Black dads who have come together to share our experiences, challenges, and triumphs as fathers. While our blog is not exclusively for Black fathers, we aim to provide a space where Black dads can find support, understanding, and community as we navigate the unique challenges of fatherhood.

As Black men, we have often been portrayed in the media as absent or disinterested in our children’s lives. But the reality is that we are deeply committed to our families and are actively involved in our children’s upbringing. We want to challenge the negative stereotypes and showcase the diversity of our experiences as Black fathers.

We are not experts in child-rearing or psychology. We are simply sharing our own personal stories and reflections on what it means to be a Black dad in today’s world. Our blog covers a wide range of topics, including the joys and challenges of parenting, our relationships with our partners and children, and the unique challenges we face as Black men raising children in a society that often treats us unfairly.

We hope that our blog will serve as a resource for other Black fathers, as well as for anyone who is interested in understanding the diverse experiences of Black men as fathers. We also welcome feedback and suggestions for future blog post topics. Thank you for joining us on this journey!
