Like many of his friends, Sean Williams loves being a dad. Sadly, he is all too familiar with the false and pervasive stereotypes about Black men as fathers. In 2016, Sean started an organization called The Dad Gang, which focuses on tackling the negative stereotypes of black fatherhood through a series of impactful events centered around celebrating active black fathers. “We love being dads and we are very active and involved in raising our children,” says Sean. “It’s sad that even today people are still shocked at the sight of black dads out here doing our daddy thing.”
The Dad Gang Instagram that boasts 64k followers, features a catalog of photos of black dads doing amazing things or simply bonding with their children. “I believe that each person can have an impact, even if all you bring to the table is some positive energy and a smile,” says Sean. “That smile goes a long way and can mean the world to someone who hasn’t seen a smile all day.”
