Welcome to Mocha Dad.
I started this blog to give black dads have a voice. I’m not talking about baby daddies; I’m talking about bonafide black daddies who are committed to raising strong, moral, successful children despite cultural and social pressures. Being a black man in America ain’t easy. Nor is being a father. Combine the two and you have a potentially stressful situation that causes many men to abdicate their responsibilities. Instead of focusing on those guys, I want to celebrate the men who accept the fatherhood challenge every day.
On this blog, I will post my observations, good or bad, on the state of black fatherhood and the black family. I don’t claim to be an expert on these topics; however, raising three children of my own has given me enough experiences to share.
I have done many things in my life and nothing comes close to the joy that I have received from raising my kids. I know there are many men who feel the same way.
I hope you enjoy Mocha Dad and visit often. Feel free to post your comments and let me know what you think about it.
