You know that Valentine’s Day is near when you see daughters grab their fathers for The Black Star Project’s Daddy Daughter Dance. Father-absence is a devastating force in any community. Girls without active fathers in their lives are more likely to show behavior disorders, drop out of school, run away from home, use illegal drugs and alcohol, engage in premature sex, commit violent acts, become incarcerated, be victims of rape, become homeless and commit suicide. A good father is a protective shield for young girls.

Thus, every year, fathers and daughters dress in semi-formal attire for the Daddy Daughter Dance as they celebrate one of the most important human bonds—the relationship between father and daughter.
