Check out this inspiring documentary by music exec/filmmaker Kobie Brown titled, “From Fatherless To Fatherhood,” which helps open up people’s eyes and reinforces some great examples of fatherhood in the Black community.
Kobie Brown tells Ebony.com:
“I completed my first film, a documentary, From Fatherless to Fatherhood, in 2012. It was inspired by a discussion with a Morehouse College classmate, and rooted the work in understanding that people and strong communities don’t just rise out of nowhere.
Our success, opportunities and perspectives are shaped and marked by our parents and community, along with the vision and legacies of both.
This 8-part web series is an extension of the film and my perspective about strengthening the currency of fathers of our community.
It provides a glimpse into the lives and perspectives of those from a Hollywood film executive to a mother of six, around the meaning and value of quality manhood and fatherhood.”
