Vanishing Black Male

Categories: Documentary, Action
1hr 15min | 2007
Are African American males becoming extinct? Will future generations of African American women not be able to find husbands? These are but a few of the questions explored in this 1 hour 16 minute documentary. Written/directed/produced by Hisani DuBose, it features Melvin Jackson, Jr. (whose acting credits include HBO's "The Wire" and UPN's "Everybody Hates Chris") who interviews doctors, politicians, college students, teachers, law enforcement personnel, a screenwriter and others. Music, artwork and a series of monologues woven throughout the movie should captivate viewers. Oscar nominated editor, Alfred Santana, helps the visuals flow smoothly. Named Best Documentary and Best Director by Kam Williams.

The picture is bleak until ethics character and morals come back. That means two parent families with a household that is filled with love and care.... Black Men and Women must care about how their offspring will function as a person, that is their job as a parent, kids didn't ask to be here you brought them into this world now it is your responsible to give them tools to be productive adults.....

Good information! We as black people have to become more aware and active in our communities. I found this film bacause I am doing research to create a solution to some of these exact problems. Thank you for presenting this issue.
