Episode 19: Valuing Black Fathers feat. Dr. Danielle Frazier and Tessie Amos III


Black fathers matter.

Though they are consistently portrayed by the mainstream media as absent, reports and statistics show that the majority of Black fathers are present, active and highly engaged in their children’s lives.

Today’s episode features Dr. Danielle Frazier and Tessie Amos, two clinical therapists who highlight the value Black fathers bring to their daughters’ lives.

We discuss the myths and realties of Black fatherhood and offer tips for healthy co-parenting and increased engagement.
