Foundations of Fatherhood

THE BLACK FATHERS FOUNDATION AT A GLANCE

The Black Fathers Foundation operates with the knowledge that  providing resources which allow Black men, as leaders of organizations and households, to carry out their work and serve most effectively, and to tell their own stories of who they are, is imperative. 

 

Other people's perceptions of who we are do not shape our realities. We do. 

Nor do the limitations others place on us define what we can achieve. We do.

 

“If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it, then I can achieve it.”

-Muhammad Ali

Friends of the Foundation

"Fatherhood is both a gift and a responsibility we give to ourselves when we create a life.

 

When done with fidelity, it is neither a chore nor a burden, but rather a joy and a pleasure."
