Description

In thirty narratives presented in their own words, some of Canada’s most acclaimed multicultural personalities, intellectuals, entertainers, athletes, and public figures share stories, memories, insights, and revelations about fatherhood, from the comic to the tragic. Through first-person essays, short stories, and interviews, this collection reveals the timeliness of the growing discourse around issues of fathering and fatherhood. Even Barack Obama has often spoken about the negative impact of too many children growing up without fathers.Academics and pundits have debated for decades what is at the heart of the problem when it comes to the much-publicized shortcomings of black fathers. Is it the lingering effects of slavery? Systemic racism? The destructive images of hip hop culture? Or is the problem just black men themselves? This book examines the state of cross-cultural fatherhood as seen by black, Asian, South Asian, and First Nations men. Their combined voices address some of the misconceived notions and truisms of modern-day masculinity and fatherhood.
