The inaugural Black Father Daughter Dance met all the criteria needed to be one of the most adorable events in Columbus.
Held last Saturday at COSI, the sold-out celebration was part of Black Girl Dad Week, created by Jewel Woods, clinical director of Male Behavioral Health, and presented in partnership with the Columbus Urban League. The initiative included a series of events highlighting the unique roles Black fathers and father figures play in the lives of Black women and girls.
