Fatherhood Is..

With Father’s Day coming up Sunday we’re happy to see some great projects about Black Dads!

Created by Sabrina Thompson of KUU photography, the Social Series is a set of responsible online campaigns that promote positive imagery. The goal of the series is for KUU to capture dynamic images and request that people around the world use social media too flood cyber space with these inspirational images within a designated time window in order to combat the negative aspects of media.

The first edition of the Social Series is titled ” Farherhood is…” (Photographer and runner-up of SURVIVOR on CBS, Sabrina Thompson, knows how media rarely reflects good images of Black men and fathers. Instead of complaining, she gathered more than fifty fathers who were nominated by their peers and took candid portraits of them interacting with their kids.

“We have to step up and provide great images for society to absorb or else all they will see are dismal images. So why not equip society with images and have them bombard the world with uplifting images via social media? It is our duty, not an option, to act responsibly.”

The campaign launched on June 10th leading into Father’s Day and has already reached over 15,000 people in cyber space. Black fathers can join the campaign by tweeting a picture of them and their kids to @thesocialseries (#FatherhoodIs) and also view/like the photo exhibit at http://www.facebook.com/thesocialseries.
