The saying goes "like father like son" and Sunday one local group celebrated the bond between the two.
The Thomas Jefferson Area African-American Male Forum hosted Father and Son Day at Burley Middle School Sunday.
Representatives from black-owned businesses were on hand to teach about searching for a job, banking, investments along with marriage and family planning.

This is the first year of the event.
