An Intimate Examination Of Black Fatherhood
de Aasha M. Abdill
Sobre o livro
Aasha M. Abdill draws on four years of fieldwork in Bedford-Stuyvesant to dispel stereotypes of black men as "deadbeat dads." She presents qualitative and quantitative evidence that confirms the increasing presence of black fathers in their communities, arguing that changing social norms about gender roles in black families have shifted behaviors. Abdill shows how supporting black men in their quest to be--and be seen as--family men is the key to securing not only their children's well-being but also their own.
