We ignite the power of fatherhood and culture to create moments that inspire.

Dear Fathers is The Premiere Media Platform dedicated to telling stories of black fathers from all angles while also empowering their community with tangible resources that inspire, heal, and strengthen the black man. Through creative expression, Dear Fathers adds fuel to the fire by capturing and unleashing the untapped power to deliver powerful and authentic moments at the center of fatherhood and culture.

Why We Started

With over 20+ years of friendship, our Co-Founders Jesse Alex and Lamar Johnson Jr. turned their pain of not having real father experiences growing up into "Dear Fathers", The Premiere Media Platform for Black Fatherhood. Heading into their late 20's, conversations about who they were/wanted to be as black men led to the passion of storytelling that would ultimately shift the culture and provide black men/fathers with a safe space to control their own narrativesĀ  While Jesse does not yet have children, Lamar is a father of two beautiful girls.
