The Mission

It is said that the tongue holds the power of life and death. In the case of Black fathers, we have been spoken of in terms that are not only destructive but ahistorical. Somehow the myth of the “absentee Black father” has overshadowed what has actually been a longstanding legacy of Black fatherhood. My mission, through Men Not Myths, is to encourage fathers who look like me to reject the myth and embrace the legacy.
