BET ON BLACK is a powerful essay anthology that will forever change the way you view fatherhood in America. In it, 20 women gather to swap the stereotype-busting stories of their fathers, grandfathers, husbands and best friends, inviting readers to join the conversation and honor the men in their lives who work hard to be the best dads they can be.

I know firsthand the value of that gift—I was raised by a single father who valued taking care of his children above all, who taught me to expect as much from the world as I expect from myself, and who never had to tell me that I could do anything, because he showed me that I could do everything. The media would have you think that my daddy is an anomaly. But from President Obama to the men featured on its pages, BET ON BLACK proves that isn't true. This presale is your chance to help change the conversation. Please back this project TODAY and join the movement. The campaign ends 10/11/13.
