We’ve been lucky enough to have been featured in the mainstream media. Here’s a few examples.
On Thursday 24th August 2017 the BBC recorded and published a video with us! The video was all about what we do, the perception of black fathers in the media, how we create a community for fathers and what’s next for MFF.
The video was, at one point, the most watched video on the BBC website homepage on the day it was published. Watch the video here.
Our founder Elliott Rae, wrote an article for the Independent entitled ‘I’m a young, married, professional black father. And I don’t exist’.
The article was published on Monday 10th July 2017 and was one of the most shared articles on the website that day. The article was shared 17k times in the first week and had massive impact on the perception of black fatherhood across the country and beyond. Read the article here.
Elliott published his second Independent article on 24 April 2018. The article spoke about why MFF was created, the father’s role during child birth and how the modern father plays a variety of roles. The article was shared by none other than The Rock!
We spoke to BuzzFeed about MFF, fathers in the media and the future. Oh and they took some super cute pics 💕😍
Members of the contributing team were interviewed on BBC Radio on Sunday 13th August 2017. The interview was all about why MusicFootballFatherhood was created, differences in parenting styles between men and women, black fathers in the media and what’s in store for MFF in the future.
