Black fatherhood doesn’t get nearly as much recognition as it deserves. So we’ve taken a moment to showcase the patriarchs of some of our FAVORITE FAMILIES.

Father’s Day is a special day in which we appreciate one of the first heroes we have in life… Our dads. Once a year (besides birthdays of course), dads are celebrated and the roles they play in everyone’s life is highlighted.

Dads have a special place in the hearts of their children, and we are here to showcase some notable father figures. While also posing the question, what kind of dad do you have? If you notice your dad below, don’t forget to let us know!

Our Favorite TV Dad

James Avery sparked across our silver screens in the ’90s as the ultimate dad and uncle figure on the hit show, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Uncle Phil taught us compassion, sportsmanship, and how to stand in your beliefs. James passed in 2013 but we’re faithful to the reins to see his wit once again!
