OUR STORY

BDG_GetTogether01_1.jpg

WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!

As BDoCs (Black Dads of Color) in Germany, we feel the burden of being a minority group every day. From the playground to the subway to work – external perceptions of Black people and fathers in non-black societies in particular lead to various kinds of racism and discrimination. 

With Black Dads Germany we not only face these problems but also prove that as a BDoC community and as Blacktivist dads we can change the narrative and perception of BPoC in Germany.

We are here to connect and foster new relationships with Black Dads of Color. We want to build and nurture new friendships, develop and grow together as Black Fathers thereby becoming a stronger pillar in our communities. We want to empower Black fathers, mothers and children, as well as the Black community who may feel marginalised or ostracised from society.

Using the relationships we have, we are breaking down boundaries and stereotypes along the way to celebrate who we are, to be proud of who we are and to know who we are.  We are sowing the seeds to give our children the start in life that they deserve. We are here for our children to make their lives as fun and enjoyable as possible.
