The Black Daddies Club (BDC) was founded in 2007 by Brandon Hay in response to the lack of forums and spaces for Black men to discuss parenting issues as well as the issues facing the Black Community as a whole. The main goal is to change the image of the black father in the media, from a neglectful figure to a responsible, involved and loving role model.

BDC mandate/guiding principles

  1. Develop a continuous support system for Black fathers to share their challenges and or experiences
  2. Host events featuring various speakers both high-profile and “everyday” people who can inspire and encourage positive practices for Black fathers and community members generally
  3. Work with the media to provide alternate images of Black fathers

The focus of the Black Daddies Club is to:

* Help fathers share their challenges with one another so eventually, loving, involved, black fathers will not seem like an exceptionality but rather the norm
* Break old cycles and replace with positive new cycles
* Mentorship program for students and “at risk youth” with their perfect jobs
* Students receive 40 hours community service towards high school credit
* To create a consistent productive forum for Black men and the community to speak about issues that effect the Black community, i.e. All black schools, learning how to invest”, becoming Mentally, Emotionally, and physically healthy, parenting and communicating with our kids, etc
* To become a monthly meeting and forum for the Black community
* A forum where journalist and writers of news media can elaborate on stories that they have published
* To create a comfortable environment where young black men can communicate productively and honestly amongst each other

These events will be in the format of a luncheon and Panel discussion; we also have a surprise guest speaker for each Black Daddies Club.

I welcome any comments or suggestions that you have.
Please upload any positive pictures displaying the black community.
We are looking for volunteers and mentors to assist with this initiative.
