New Book “Daddy Everyday” Confronts the Stereotype of African-American Fathers and Challenges Society to Change Their Perception
McDonough, Georgia, October 11, 2013 – The idea of the inattentive and absent African-American father is an image that persists in media and culture. However, author Delonso Barnes' new book Daddy Everyday confronts the stereotype and challenges society to change their mentality towards black fathers.
“Deadbeats” is a term often used to describe black fathers, and Barnes wants to celebrate the black men who have stepped up to perform their fatherly duties. It's these men we must recognize, Barnes believes, because they're demolishing the stereotype. He writes of the importance of black males for the development of children and community. With his new publication, Barnes hopes to trigger a shift in the negative perception towards black fathers and black men in general, as these thoughts present a danger to the African-American community.
Daddy Everyday is Barnes' contribution to rewriting the Black American Dad story.
Daddy Everyday provides tips, testimonies, and advice on the black fatherhood expectations and issues of importance in child raising, such as budgeting, discipline, health and more. The result is a comprehensive guide that will demonstrate how to be an effective black father or father figure, shattering any stereotypes that persist. Black fathers, stepfathers, brothers, and uncles are a vital part of the black community, and Daddy Everyday explains why they help shape the growth of a community. Whether it's positive or negative growth is on the shoulders of all the black men, Barnes points out, and Daddy Everyday starts these conversations with candid discussion.
Daddy Everyday will be available on Kindle, iBooks, Amazon.com, Nook and MrDelonso.com
