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. We're dedicated to uplifting, educating, and telling stories of black fatherhood from every angle while also empowering our strong community through our interviews, networking and collaborations, exclusive content, resources, events, mental health, and more. #DearFathers

OUR FOUNDERS

Jesse Alex and Lamar Johnson Jr. turned their pain of not having fathers growing up into "Dear Fathers", the premier media platform for black fatherhood. While Jesse does not yet have children, Lamar is a father of two beautiful girls. Jesse also helps co-host our podcast that interviews celebrity fathers.
