The Black Fatherhood Project
The Black Fatherhood Project is a film and nonprofit organization established to engage communities across the United States and beyond on the issue of families and fatherhood. The nonprofit arm of the project engages parents, teens, mentors, and community members through film screenings and workshops on topics related to sustaining and strengthening the family unit through love, responsibility, and equity-seeking public policy, particularly in a Black American context but applicable to all people.
Description of the film: First-time filmmaker Jordan Thierry offers context and conversation in this honest exploration of fatherhood in Black America. Through a telling of his own story and interviews with historians, he traces the roots of the fatherless Black home and reveals a history much more complex and profound than is often told. Putting that history into perspective is a dialogue among fathers discussing their experiences, inspirations, and insight on how communities can come together to ensure the power of a father’s love is not lost on America’s Black children.
