From Actress Sanaa Lathan to Georgia State Supreme Court Chief Justice Leah Ward Sears, many African-American women attribute much of their success to a positive father figure.

In Daughters of Men, author Rachel Vassel has complied dozens of stunning photographs (by celebrity photographer Derek Blanks) and compelling personal essays about African- American women and their fathers.  Whether it's a father who encouraged his daughter's artistic eye by taking her to cultural events or one who unwaveringly supported a risky career move, the fathers in Daughters of Men each had their own unique yet successful style of parenting.

Daughters of Men is the first title to showcase the importance of the Black father's impact on the accomplishments of his daughter.  With a heartfelt foreword by best-selling author, professor and radio host Michael Eric Dyson, this book provides an intimate look at black fatherhood.
