Emerging Leader Defies Fatherhood Stereotypes

Today’s society doesn’t always paint the most positive image of fatherhood. In so many TV shows, movies, and commercials, dads are portrayed as flaky, sports-obsessed, and blissfully uninvolved in parenting—or they are seen as loveless authority figures.

Dr. Bantu Gross especially noticed the cultural myth of deadbeat dads in the African American community. He saw this myth lived out when he accompanied his wife to a doctor’s appointment during her third pregnancy.

We work hand in hand with Christian nonprofits to end poverty, violence, and inequality in our communities. Take action today and raise up those in need.
