During Black History Month the spotlight focuses on important figures on history. This book, a collection of essays, celebrates another kind of hero: black men who are fathers. The powerful true-life stories challenge the prevailing stereotypes of African-American fathers as they celebrate fathers and father figures who were inspiring role models-often in the face of what seemed like overwhelming challenges.
