You've been waiting for this last magazine issue of Rad Dad Magazine? Here it go, if you didnt cop one, support that. If you already got the message, think of a young father who don't know yet.

Little Black Books Give away-Young, Black, Nappy

Hey all, please check out YOUNG BLACK & NAPPY! I ran into these folks at the Oakland Indie Fest and was delighted to find out that they were a family of naturals (afros, locks, etc). We got to talking and realized Furqans First would be a great fit for a contest they are running to give away children's books featuring African American children. So please  go to their site and check them out. Even if you already got a copy coming through the kickstarter campaign, please check out the other books they'll be giving away.
