Description: Offering an eloquent combination of fifty beautiful black-and-white photographs and poignant quotations from the fathers and children portrayed, Commitment provides a powerful rendition of fatherhood in black America.

The father is often perceived as someone absent from the African American family, though the reasons for this perception vary. This book shows another side to that image, a positive one depicting black men who are supportive and nurturing parents. To reveal and celebrate this less often recognized parent, Carole Patterson has spent several years crossing the continent to interview and photograph responsible black fathers. Photographer Anthonoy Barboza has also contributed imagery. These portraits -- young fathers, older fathers, a great-grandfather, fathers on different levels of the economic ladder -- provide valuable insight into American culture and deliver an important message to everyone about parenthood and the responsibilities attached to it.

Commitment is a moving testimonial to fathers and their families everywhere.
