    Thought-Provoking Documentary Examines "What Black Men Think"


    [​IMG]




    Merely relying on data readily available from government agencies, Morton, pointer in hand, uses graphs, charts and a chalkboard to debunk a litany of popular stereotypes like the idea that there are more black men in prison than in college, that most don't graduate from high school and that most don't pay child support. Not only does director Morton expose all these widely-disseminated notions as fallacious, but he suggests that, left unchallenged, they have the ability to do an incalculable amount of damage to impressionable young minds.

    In sum, What Black Men Think is highly recommended as an excellent alternative to the mainstream propaganda which would have us internalize the worst beliefs about an unfairly maligned segment of society.

    Has anyone seen it, or seen it being advertised?

    I wonder where we'd catch it at?

    MEN II BOYS


    Produced and directed by award winning documentarian and Founder/CEO of iYAGO Entertainment Janks Morton, Men II Boys is a 44-minute film featuring men from all walks of life, delivering words of wisdom or jewels, as a resource for boys and young men of color as they ascend to manhood. The film stems from the fact that over 82% of black children, born since 1990, do not have daily contact with their biological fathers.

    The film features special interviews with Congressman Elijah E. Cummings; University of Maryland at Baltimore County President, Dr. Freeman A. Hrabowski III; Journalist & Social Activist, Jeff Johnson; and NFL player Daniel Wilcox.

    “With 69.7% out of wedlock birthrate and a divorce rate in excess of 50%, too many young boys of color do not have access to the time honored tradition of Father to Son inter-relation,” says Morton. “Men II Boys is a movement to encourage these relationships which are critical in the development of boys of color and building strong families.”

    Boys and young men of color need and want advice on all kinds of issues, for all kinds of problems, questions, and concerns. Often, they dont know who or how to ask. 101 Things Every Boy/Young Man of Color Should Know provides the page turning resource needed to inspire every boy of color to do their best. This book is a collection of motivational messages from men who are concerned about the well-being of young males of color.

    The foreword was written by Congressmen Jesse Jackson, Jr, and the introduction was written by David Banks, founder of the Eagle Heights Academy for Young Men.

    101 Things Every Boy/Young Man of Color Should Know was the motivation behind the critically acclaimed documentary Men II Boys, by filmmaker Janks Morton.

    Unless one is in "hate mode" this was just a simple question regarding all the numerous folks in the documentary, why is everything a personal issue?
