Memorable Black Fathers in Movies

These unforgettable onscreen portrayals of black dads have helped to change the narrative.

I know you are probably questioning what a hustling and basketball movie has to do with the father. The Black Father can not be captured in just one role, there are many stories and yes this is one of them.

The one and only dynamic duo Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson, will make you laugh in White Men Can’t Jump, but Snipe’s character, Sidney Deane will leave you filled with emotions as you root for him to retrieve his family back on feet. He did small business and played ball. Despite being a show-boater –which for the sake of show-boating—Deane did whatever he could to ensure that the family has food on their table.
