The League of Extraordinary Fathers is a project of ColeSpeaks and is a publication that seeks to feature the stories and lives of African-American Fathers & Father Figures. We will feature a collection of Interviews, Stories, and Positive Images of African American Fathers who represent characteristics that go beyond the norm of Parenthood. We would count it an honor to partner with you in this effort to shine a light on all the amazing African-American fathers right here in Kent County. Below you will find two ways to submit your entry: You can download a paper (pdf version) or you can submit by filling out the online entry form.
The Fatherhood Submission Forms both have a FATHERHOOD QUESTIONNAIRE that must be completed by each participant. The list of questions are straight-forward, while others will require you to make yourself a bit more vulnerable. Please take some time to provide thoughtful answers to these questions.
REMEMBER: Regardless of how big or small, how simple or dynamic, your authentic story is powerful in its’ own right and could make a life-changing impression on another individual. There are no right or wrong answers here.
"The healthiest Fathers are those who can teach and model that -- Success is in the Journey, not the destination.” – Arthur Robert Ashe, Jr
