On behalf of the Black American Dad Foundation we would like to thank you for taking the time to check us out! B.A.D started as the result of one of the greatest gifts we ever experienced, becoming a FATHER. We Created B.A.D. to be a positive and more important supportive group for parents in all stages.  we are the Black American Dads, we created this foundation to help as many faTHERS in whatever way we can. 

there is no greater joy than a new baby brought into the world. Our motto is "Through our children, we will rise." To fulfill our motto, we have a goal as the Black American Dad Foundation to support allBLACK FATHERS. Through that, we hope to empower their children to be the bright stars to humanity we know that they are.

Jeremy Givens - President

Before he was a father, Jeremy wanted to change the narrative of who "the black father" is. He saw a narrative that was troubling to him and was determined to find a way to shed light on who "the black father" truly is. Along with bringing recognition to great black fathers, he wanted to also find a way to help both current and future fathers embrace this role and live a lifestyle according to it. Now, Jeremy is the father of an amazing 5 year old boy, Cohen, and he lives with the motivation to build a better life for his son. Fatherhood is more than a role, it is a lifestyle; and spreading the word about that fatherhood is a driving factor of the manifestation of Black American Dad. Outside of B.A.D., Jeremy is an entrepreneur, actor, and filmmaker.
