Disruptors: Kings List

Black fathers are important to our community. Unfortunately, the media paints a negative picture of Black fathers. The stereotype that follows these men affects their mental health and their ability to learn how to evolve into who their children need them to be. In the past, positive examples of Black Fatherhood came far and few between. But, In fact, statistics show that single Black fathers have grown since the 1990s.

These four Kings represent what it means to set an example of the positivity of Black Fatherhood. These men know the power they have to influence their bloodline for years to come and they have made it their mission to support other Black fathers. Vulnerability and the willingness to be honest about their struggles show their bravery in a world that does its best to show that they do not exist.
