Who’s Your Daddy: Fathering For Dummies (and Hip Hoppers, Hipsters and POC too!)

Please join me for the launch of my fourth book, Fatherhood 4.0: iDad Applications Across Cultures. It will be a night of brutally frank conversations about Baby Daddyhood, as seen through the eyes of some blog-addicted, media savvy, POC pops weaned on everything from the Cosby Show and George Lopez, to the Osbournes and Obama.


What makes a good dad? Do 21st century men face bigger challenges than their fathers did? Do Lil' Weezy and Nas go to parent-teacher nights? And what’s it like being a Hip Hop Pop? Any man who claims to have completely mastered the Art of Fathering, across cultures, might either be lying or delusional!

Fatherhood 4.0 contains candid interviews with: the Argos' Michael "Pinball" Clemons, Broken Social Scene's Charles Spearin, Toronto FC's Dwayne De Rosario, Bollywood Boulevard's Mohit Rajhans, genius George Elliott Clarke, heady Hal Niedzvicki, author Lawrence Hill (Book of Negroes), Fucked Up's Damian Abraham, dramatist Richard Lee, CBC's Matt Galloway, social entrepreneur Sol Guy, Plex, and many more...

And, like, do some of you guys out there ever wonder why they call you (or your dad) Big Poppa?

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
