The Eighth Birthday of the Fatherdad Blog

On this day eight years ago I made my first post on fatherdad.com. That was the first ever post by a black "daddy blogger." I searched high and low for one before I determined that I was it. I think that post is a hilariously bad and somewhat profound (and very much unnoticed) internet milestone. [...]

IT’S TIME FOR DAD’S WELLNESS

Wellness Wheel When I first got into blogging about six years ago there was this constant urge to, if not overwhelming obsession with, trying to convince the world that good dads existed, especially the so-called good black dad. But in relation to the internet six years ago might as well be sixty. Since then [...]

IT’S FATHER’S DAY

This is my tenth Father's Day. When my first one came around my son was about 6 weeks old. By then I was officially among the ranks of the sleep deprived and utterly confused. Since those days there has been a lot of living going on. Growing too (especially Dev who is now 9 feet [...]

FOR OUR 6th BIRTHDAY WE MOVED!

Six years ago in this month I started the fatherdad.com/African American Dad blog through Malecare Inc. Since then I have been writing and working on a so many projects in addition to my regular 9-5 work that I am kind of dizzy. Even when I have gone radio silent for long stretches, I'm usually busy [...]

NOT DONE YET

I don't know where the time goes! At some point I looked up and a crazy amount of time had passed by. I feel like I have been constantly working doing presentations, writing, and networking yet nothing is happening aside from, or is as certain as, the passage of time. All of my efforts despite [...]

IT’S ABOUT WELLNESS, STUPID

For some reason you have to call a thing what it is. If you are baking a cake, you can't call it a cookie. If you are angry, you shouldn't sugar coat it and say you are annoyed or upset. If there's no alcohol in it, it's not a cocktail. I can go on and [...]

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YA!

If you want to call me an advocate, say that I am a black (and brown!) male health and fatherhood advocate. Say I created BDC because disparities in African American health exist. Say I blog because injustice is still here (and in every paycheck Snooki receives). I do this work because I love this country [...]

INJUSTICE: IT’S STILL HERE

On the eve of what would have been Dr. King's 83rd birthday, I sit in reflection, an amalgamation of both frustration and hopefulness. The frustration comes from being acutely aware that we are in the process of losing an entire generation of black males, despite who sits in the White House. There are more black [...]
