Where Are They Now? Black TV Fathers

June 13, 2014 ‐ By Kendra Koger

Happy Father’s Day, Darlings!  Through the lens of the media, African Americans have been viewed in a very marginalized way.  Stereotypes were magnified, and they began to become the way the world saw us.  However, through the use of scripted programming, the world was introduced to an image that defied the expectations of many believers of the Moynihan Report, and showed that though there are some deadbeat dads, that’s not true in every Black household.  So to honor these men who tried to show a more rounded view of Black culture, here is a list of Black TV fathers.  I hope you all enjoy, and to all of the fathers, happy father’s day!
