Many things come to Kendrick Nunn’s mind when he hears the stereotypes that African-American men are often absent fathers.

The Miami Heat guard has the perspective of someone who was raised by a single Black father in Chicago and currently has full custody of his own young son.

“When I hear things like that … I honestly just think they haven’t been exposed to the good Black fathers out there that are actually taking care of responsibilities and taking care of their children,” Nunn told The Undefeated. “There are single Black fathers out there like that. And actually, the first thing that comes to mind is my dad.

“There are single fathers out there that’s doing good things.”

Nunn recently partnered with the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) to give a grant to the Dovetail Project, a nonprofit that helps men in the Chicago area who are single parents.
