We ignite the power of fatherhood and culture to create moments that inspire.
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. DF 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. Dear Fathers is known for its engaging social media content, numerous storytelling series that uplift every day dads, a podcast that features celebrity fathers, and STR8 Mental, their mental health initiative for black men to unpack and fellowship in a group setting amongst two black male therapists.
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 narratives While Jesse does not yet have children, Lamar is a father of two beautiful girls.
