From Fatherless to Fatherhood

We live in a society where so many men have abandoned their duties as fathers altogether. Others have surmised their parental obligations are limited to material needs. As a result, thousands upon thousands of children grow up fatherless, hurt, and resentful.

In From Fatherless to Fatherhood, author and world-renowned actor Omar Epps chronicles his journey from humble beginnings in Brooklyn, New York, to the bright lights of Hollywood. 

Having grown up without his biological father, then becoming a father himself, Epps shares his story of pain and triumph in a uniquely visceral way. It’s an intimate, unapologetic, and emotional conversation about childhood, manhood, and parenting.  

From Fatherless to Fatherhood touches on many themes surrounding the importance of family and community. It also shows how men can break the cycle of fatherlessness within their families, and come to terms with their own issues surrounding their fathers.

Author and world renowned actor Omar Epps chronicles his journey from humble beginnings in Brooklyn, New York, to the bright lights of Hollywood. Having grown up without his biological father, then becoming a father himself, Epps shares his story of pain and triumph in a uniquely visceral way.

From Fatherless to Fatherhood touches on many themes surrounding the importance of family and community. It also shows how men can break the cycle of fatherlessness within their families, and come to terms with their own issues surrounding their fathers. 

Fatherhood is about much more than providing food and shelter for a child. It's about much more than cutting a check to check a box. 

Fatherhood is about being active in a child's life, and cultivating those sacred bonds of family. It's about guiding and teaching a child how to be a loving, honest, respectful individual who will permeate goodness to all they encounter.

This Determined Family Is Bringing Diverse Books To Children All Across The Country
With “50 States 50 Books”, the Gordon family is on a mission to close the literacy gap

 

Concerned about the lack of diversity in children’s books, Charnaie Gordon and her two kids are bridging the literacy gap with their new project that brings diverse books to children in each of the 50 states.

Gordon founded the Here Wee Read platform, which highlights diversity in children’s books, featuring multiple races, cultures and religions. The curated books also teach children about important subjects such as immigration and politics.

Through “50 States 50 Books”, Gordon and her two children are sending these significant books to non-profit organizations, libraries, schools, and more, to every state in the country.

Since launching this project, Gordon shares that several people have felt inspired to help, and have bought titles from Here Wee Read’s Amazon Wish List, that includes multiple sections such as “Juneteenth Books”; “Asian Picture & Chapter Books”; and “Latino/Bilingual Picture Books”.
