Many Caribbean fathers are seen as worthless and irresponsible but there are many stories of those who love and support their kids.
This video features Gordon Bradford a father and grandfather from Guyana, addressing fathers of young children to encourage them to teach their children basic literature and math skills before going to school.
And when we come across these great example of Caribbean fathers, why do we say “we need more men like this”
When you speak to some of these fathers, most of them say they want to be the kind of father they had not had. Their stories are unique, complicated and interesting, I think it is important to provide a necessary counter to the predominant image of the absent Caribbean father.
