 Here are some words people said:

“The stigma of the absentee father has for decades haunted black men, discouraging some while compelling others to challenge stereotypes by overcompensating for them. As the writer Trymaine Lee noted in the postscript to 'Father Figure,' the intimacy and trust afforded Mr. Lee by his subjects allowed him to strip away 'the mask that so many black men wear to shield any sense of vulnerability from the world, a buffer between them and a society that has so often used them as a source of villainy and caricature.'” ~ Maurice Berger for The New York Times.

“It's obvious but it's also essential. These are pretty much universal feelings that all fathers (and mothers for that matter) go through. But it's that obviousness that makes these sentiments so essential, because (from a distance - I'm not black and I live in the UK) they are so rarely expressed in such a direct manner.” ~ Colin Pantall.

While the design and production are rudimentary in nature, “it is in no way sentimental or romanticized, a well-photographed slice of American life. I don’t think I have ever seen a book quite like it.” ~ Anne Wilkes Tucker.
