Barbershop Talk Series: Recognizing The Harms Of Normalizing The Absent Black Father

On July 31st, 2021, ACMP is hosting a special event where audience members are invited to discuss their thoughts regarding the stereotypical notions of the absent Black father. This event will focus on how normalizing this myth of Black fatherhood is dangerous to Black families and communities and has significantly impacted Black youth. The event encourages participants to share their experiences and think about ways we can dispel the normalization of the myth of the absent Black father to more complicated ways that non-resident, residents and Other fathers engage in parenting and contribute to their families and communities.  

This event will encourage participants to engage online (Zoom) and in-person (limited spaces available). If you are in the Toronto area and want to join the conversation in person, please know we have 20 available spots. We will be offering the first 10 people who register and attend free haircuts*!

**When you register, we will provide you with the address of the location.**

*Note: haircuts available only to in-person participants in Scarborough, Ontario at the location of the event – Saturday Life Barbershop

Where: Saturday Life Barbershop (Scarborough, Ontario) / Zoom

This event keeps in mind that “fatherhood” at times omits Afro-Caribbean Black (ACB) father’s lived experiences and silences the emotional lives of ACB fathers. We purposely open this space to acknowledge, appreciate, honour and recognize ACB fathers.  Through our guests and participants’ unique and valuable experiences, we will explore what Afro-Caribbean Black (ACB) Fatherhood means. 

This event is open to all Canadian community members to learn and share thoughts on the role of fathers in the ACB community. We encourage students from high school to all levels of post-secondary institutions to attend.
