Fatherhood 4.0: IDad Applications Across Cultures
Some of Canada's most acclaimed multicultural personalities, public figures, intellectuals, entertainers, athletes, and activists share stories, memories, insights, and revelations about fatherhood, from the comic to the tragic. Through critical essays, first-person musings, interviews, conversations, spoken word, and dub poetry, this collection examines the place where cross-cultural fatherhood intersects with the worlds of technology, hip hop, and hipster culture - a cool diverse dads movement! As an African-Canadian fatherhood advocate, Dalton Higgins also digs around to see how black fathers of this millennium are faring, as academics and pundits have debated for decades what is at the heart of the problem when it comes to the much-publicized shortcomings of black fathers. Fatherhood 4.0 spots trends across a newer generation of media-savvy multi-culti dads influenced by everything from George Lopez and Bill Cosby to the Osbournes and Obama, with keen insights and essays from fatherhood activists. It includes essays on the "baby daddy" phenomenon and Bob Marley, pops in popular culture, technology and parenting, and crucial research on aboriginal fatherhood by Dr. Jessica Ball. The book contains candid interviews with: Michael "Pinball" Clemons, Broken Social Scene's Charles Spearin, Toronto FC's Dwayne De Rosario, Bollywood Boulevard's Mohit Rajhans, George Elliott Clarke, Hal Niedzvicki, Lawrence Hill, Fucked Up's Damian Abraham, dramatist Richard Lee, the CBC's Matt Galloway, social entrepreneur Sol Guy, Plex, and more!
