Dope Black Dads

Time to shape our own narrative


Why are there so few positive and constructive conversations around black fathers?  A group of black dads based in London, New York and South Africa have come together to address this and provide a progressive discussion around the male parenting experience, discussing the highs and lows of what it means to be a black father in today’s society. 

On Fathers’ day this year (Sunday 17th June 2018 in the UK) Marvyn Harrison, an advertising executive from London decided to create a WhatsApp group with all of the positive black fathers he knew (at the time 23 people) to wish them a Happy Fathers’ Day ‘Thank you’ and ‘Congratulations’ for their positive influence in their child’s lives and changing the perception of black men for the better.

Sorry, there are no upcoming events
