How It Works
This website is a celebration of your family and mine, and the Black Family Values that have brought us thus far and will carry us on. It is a place for your to share your story.
We invite you to upload a video telling the world about your mother and/or father. Tell the world what it means to you to be a mother or father. Grow up without a mother and/or a father – then tell the world how you made sure your child did not have to grow up without you being there for him or her.
How To Make a Black Family Values Video:
Please submit only one video under seven minutes in length.
- YouTube/Google Account

- Clear sound is crucial.
If no one can hear it, no one will watch it. Make sure to shoot in quiet environments and project.
- Don’t backlight.
Make sure light is on your face and not behind it — i.e. don’t sit in front of a bright window.
- Title and tag your video.
Use the title “Black Family Values” and include your name and location – ex: “Black Family Values: Charles in Nashville”.
Use tags to describe your video so that other people can find it — ex: “Black Father Appreciation” or “Black Married Couple”.
- Please don’t use our logo.
Please don’t use our logo in your video, as it is trademarked.
