Abstract

The literature reviewed in this conceptual paper identified some of the causes that lead to absentee fathers within the African American community. This body of work also shed light on these fathers’ emotional state, and financial state in regards to being able to care for their children. The men identified in these studies all shared a common theme, despite how they are portrayed in society they all had a desire to be a part of their children’s lives and needed someone to advocate on their behalf.
