AbstractRecent fatherhood scholarship highlights the value of Black fathers in the lives of their sons. However, few scholars point to what Black fathers provide to the lives of their Black daughters as it relates to sexual outcomes. The current study uses logistic regression analysis to examine responses (n = 846) from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health), 1994–2008 (ICPSR 21,600), using Waves II, III, and IV, (ages 14–34). Talking with fathers about school-related activities significantly decreased odds of experiencing a live birth for Black adolescent females. Decreased odds of experiencing a live birth were found for daughters whose fathers approved of their stable sex partner. Future research regarding Black paternal engagement and daughters’ sexual outcomes is warranted.
