In this vibrant collective, The Brotherhood of Black Fathers, Nikita Jackson celebrates the positive impact and cultural significance of Black Men, their families and their various roles in society.
Her plea to the Black Man for self-love, health, wellness and sound spiritual and psychological processing strikes an important note of care.

If you are a Black man, or you know, love or care about a Black man, this book is for YOU! It is an undeniable fact today that the Black family is under attack. To oppose this, we as Black men must launch a counteroffensive.
We mustrealize that ideologies forced on us by external sources are not nearly as destructive as the self-imposed demons we harbor within ourselves. We must take control of our destiny and develop the self-love and self-care we not only need but, more importantly, deserve.

“Daddy, what could have been so distracting that you would not try harder to fix us?” I asked. He said, “For starters, I was not in my right mind. I was stressed. I suffered from depression, and I was not living right.” He did not have to fill in the blanks.
Black Father, the most significant leverage to leaving a legacy to your family and those who have your ear, focuses on shifting your mindset about your health.
Get your body positioned to align with your spirit. Approach your health like you approach taking care of that car you’ve affectionately named, the pristine lawn you so carefully manicure, or that big problem on your job you have been assigned to tackle.
