What is the impact of missing fathers in the African-American community? The answer is a complex one, but Kobie Brown’s new documentary “From Fatherless To Fatherhood” explores the causes, effects and possible solutions to this community-wide epidemic.
“As part of this celebration, we are thrilled to bring filmmaker Kobie Brown’s groundbreaking documentary to audiences as the nation celebrates fatherhood,” the network released in a statement. “We hope that this film’s debut on ASPiRE stimulates and inspires conversation on this important topic.”
The independent film will make its television debut on Magic Johnson’s ASPiRE network this Father’s Day. Along with sparking the conversation and asking tough questions, the film “highlights Black men who are fostering quality relationships with their children, families and therefore, their communities.”
Directed by Kobie Brown, the documentary also includes reflections on fatherhood by Kirk Franklin, Dr. Steve Perry, Reverend DeForest B. Soaries and Jeff Robinson.
