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.
Organizers say they hope the entire community will take notice.
"The goal and the purpose of this is to raise our community up; for the African American community to raise up in the eyes of the general community and also the African American community as a whole," Elder William T. Coles, founder of the organization.
This is the first year of the event.
