Just in time for Father's Day, David Manuel, author of I Am A Father, Celebrating African American Fathers, shares the vision behind writing this book, which debunks misleading myths that black fathers are not part of their children's lives. The powerful book shares personal stories and great photos of black fathers and their relationships with their children. A unique component of the book is that the children of these fathers also share their feelings about their dads. Among the fathers who share are the legendary actors Sidney Poitier and Morgan Freeman, as well as other fathers representing those well known and those not known, but meaningful nonetheless.
