Debunking the Myth of the "Deadbeat Dad"

CC | tv-pg
In this clip, Oprah cites a landmark study from the Centers for Disease Control, which effectively debunks the myth of the Black "deadbeat" dad. The study, she says, shows that Black fathers tend to be very active in their children's lives and are more likely to live with their children, to dress and bathe their children, to prepare meals with their children and to help their children with their homework than men of other races.

"Oprah + 100 Black Fathers" airs June 30 at 10/9c on OWN.
