We all have had stories about Black fathers—some of them remarkably negative from absenteeism to battles with child support and numerous “baby mamas.” On this week’s MiniPod, however, cohost Andrew Gillum, wants to challenge the narrative with facts. According to the CDC, Black fathers are more likely to be involved in activities with their children compared to white and Hispanic fathers AND ANDREW IS ONE OF THEM!  Angela Rye and Tiffany Cross join Andrew in sharing their own experiences and memories of their fathers while also discussing the challenges, myths and misconceptions of Black fatherhood.
