Fatherhood: Tray Chaney Of “The Wire” Celebrates Dedicated Black Dads In His New Video
By Denene Millner
Chaney’s “Fatherhood,” with it’s delicious neo-soul guitar lick set to a military-styled beat, is a celebration of fathers getting it right and a clarion call to dads falling down on the job. The clear-eyed, to-the-point takeaway: Square your shoulders, step up and be a father to your child. The video, directed by BlackAndMarriedWithKids.com’s Lamar Tyler of Tyler New Media, features Chaney with both his (adorable!) son and his father, as well as a myriad of more incredible, dedicated dads and their children, including Kris Richards, the husband of Execumama.com’s Akilah Richards, and their beautiful daughters, and my man, Nick Chiles, and our three babies.
I invite you to watch the video for Tray Chaney’s “Fatherhood,” really dig into his words and, most importantly, share it within your social media networks. We can count on every media outlet to dog out black men with abandon, but if we want to take control of our images, clearly, we’re going to have to step up and do it ourselves. This is one of those images I’m proud to host here on MyBrownBaby and I encourage my readers to do the same. Tweet this. FaceBook Share and “Like” it. Google+ It. Email it to your people—the good dads and even the not-so-good ones. And leave a comment if you love it. Congratulations, Trey!
