Today is Father’s Day (June 17), however Tray Chaney believes everyday should be an opportunity to reward dads holding it down.
That’s why he’s created the “Dedicated Father Series” Movement Online Award Show. During the program, he showcases pictures of fathers across America who have sent in pictures of themselves with their kids. Each entry includes one or two sentences explaining what it means to be a dedicated father.
“I’ve been pushing my Dedicated Father brand through hip-hop music along with merchandise,” he said in part in a statement. “With so many negative images on African American fathers I just felt the need to celebrate US because it’s a lot of fathers out here waking up extra early in the morning going to work hustling grinding doing the best they can to provide for & take care of their families, most importantly, their kids.”
Watch below as Tray Chaney holds an online Dedicated Father award ceremony, surprising five Dedicated Fathers with gold and black plaques.
