Erik
Jean and his daughters

"I think of my role as a father as that of support to my two daughters being brilliant, beautiful, strong, and resilient. I can't support them without listening to them, without learning from them, learning to soften rough edges, while staying stable enough for them to lean on, and lift off from."

Terrance and his daughter

"I want my daughter to see nature as a reflection of herself. So as she moves through this world she can better navigate the adversities of this life by recognizing the patterns and what comes next sunrise to sunset, season to season and all the cycles of the moon. That's natural."

Terrance
Ken and his son

"Pan-Africanism is my way of life. I have taught my son that regardless of the branch Africa is the root. We had a wonderful #blackpanthermovie weekend. I'm hoping he will see past the moment and embrace the movement."

Ken

Rob
