New Film Addresses Solutions to Fatherlessness

Filmmaker Kobie Brown is on a mission to improve the fatherlessness problem within the African-American community. He opened up dialogue with his latest film, From Fatherless to Fatherhood, a documentary that explores the causes, effects and possible solutions to father absence in African-American communities.
In addition to discussing the problem, the film also provides examples of Black men who are fostering quality relationships with their children, families and therefore, their communities.

“This film is a gift to those men who provide living examples of leadership to their children and families, as well as a challenge to those men who are absent from the lives of their children,” says Kobie Brown. “It will hopefully encourage the latter to get past the shame and ego impediments and to make the choice to start mending those broken bonds today. Because whenever they start it matters.”

From Fatherless to Fatherhood, which has been featured by the Huffington Post, CNN, and more, is rooted in the real lives of men, women and children and buttressed by the perspectives of Multi Grammy-Award winning Gospel Recording Artist Kirk Franklin, Dr. Steve Perry, Reverend DeForest B. Soaries and Jeff Robinson.
