Seven perfect Father’s Day cards for Black dads
Father’s Day is just around the corner (21 June – get it in your diary) – but luckily for you, there’s still time to find the perfect card and post it off.
Lots of us have been separated from our parents for longer than ever before, so Father’s Day is a great way to show you’re thinking of your old dad.
The problem is though, that the cards available for Father’s Day aren’t always very diverse or representative?
A quick scan through the high street greetings card shop websites will depict reams of middle-aged white men, who love golf, beer and football – and little else. But what if your dad doesn’t fit this picture?
We had a scan to find some beautiful, diverse cards – from Black-owned producers – that represent Black dads in all their glory. So you can make your dad feel truly special, even if you can’t be there in person.
