By: Kiana Cateau
Year after year, fathers remind us that they have everything. From the greatest family, to an obscene amount of watches, socks, ties, and cuff links galore-they have it all.
We spend endless time marveling the idea of reciprocating what our fathers mean to us. The spirited men who protect us from the uncertainty of the world, resiliently serve and provide for our families, and instill in us teachings that will remain forever embedded in our hearts.
This Father’s Day, Sunday, June 19th, 2022, we will not only celebrate the heroic nature of our dads, but also the of commemoration of emancipation that is Juneteenth. We couldn’t think of a better to honor our Father’s, than with Black-owned products that give them an experience that could only be offered through the depths of creation within Black culture.
