Tiffany Parker, an author and a mother of three from Birmingham, Alabama, has released an innovative children’s book, Just Like Your Daddy, to shift the narrative of Black fathers.

Just Like Your Daddy is an expressive story filled with daily affirmations that are meant to uplift children of all ages. The book was designed to empower parents and celebrate the relationship of a Black father and son. Oftentimes, especially in the Black community, hearing the phrase “You’re just like your daddy,” is derogatory. “I wanted to take something that is typically negative and make it positive,” says Parker. Just Like Your Daddy encourages parents to celebrate that great Black dads do exist.

Parker came up with the idea for the book while searching for bedtime stories for her son. Since she couldn’t find many stories with characters that resembled her son, she decided to create one.

Harold Phifer has announced the publication of his second book, a collection of autobiographical short stories exploring his sad and often appalling upbringing in Columbus, Mississippi.  Kept secret for more than 50 years, Phifer’s childhood was largely forgotten until an explosion during a job in Afghanistan forced him to take some time off to recover in a paradise beach resort in Thailand.

While there, he met an unusual but compassionate stranger who pulled him into a long discussion about his experiences growing up. Hours later, Phifer finally found a measure of peace from the ghosts of his past and began planning out the stories that would later appear in Surviving Chaos. The book is available for purchase via AmazonBarnes & Noble, and Audible.  For More Info Click Here

Author and U.S. Army chaplain James Darren Key highlights 40 lessons and stories about race, love, honor, and faith to inspire people during changing times in his new memoir A Long Way from Crenshaw: Lessons and Stories about Race, Love, Honor, and Faith for These Changing Times (published by WestBow Press).

With the purpose of being accessible to all, the author writes in a conversational style. Exploring how life can change, and not always positively, he demonstrates how the human spirit can overcome those circumstances.

Additionally, Key speaks candidly about growing up Black in California in the 1970s and 1980s. Wanting to empower others, the author examines his own weaknesses and fears.

Through this study, he hopes to help people:

• recognize failures and successes along their journey;
• approach race and diversity with sensitivity and courage;
• heal from an unhealthy relationship before starting a new one;
• face trials and controversy with unshakable faith.

You can order "A Long Way from Crenshaw" at Amazon and Barnes & Noble

“Things are spoken over us as children, good or bad, and can follow us all the way into adulthood. I believe we have the power as parents to break any cycles we want with our own kids,” says Parker.

Just Like Your Daddy features kids of color with a wonderfully active dad in a positive light. It emphasizes that Black dads are dope and love to embrace fatherhood. Celebrating the Black father-son relationship is something Parker is passionate about.

“The world will already tell us that Black fathers are not around. Being a product of a great dad myself, I can say, that’s just not true. This is why representation matters. There are amazing dads out there that will never get enough recognition. I hope my book helps to change that, one page at a time,” says Parker.

Just Like Your Daddy can be purchased on Amazon.
