THE NASHVILLE FILM PREMIER AND COMMUNITY DISCUSSION
Thursday, February 2, 2012
Belmont University—Beaman A& B
This is a FREE Event
LITTLE BROTHER is a series of 15-minute documentary films dedicated to giving Black boys a unique voice. Filmmakers NICOLE FRANKLIN and JASMIN TIGGETT take an annual look at Black boys as young as nine years old for a one-on-one conversation demystifying what society tends to rob them of: LOVE. Set in Camden, New Jersey, well-known as one of the nation’s most dangerous cities, the film takes a look at boys growing up amongst extreme violence, poverty and crime, and explores their feelings on love and relationships set against impossible odds. Filmmakers visit boys on Chicago’s South Side to discuss their thoughts on parents, pressure, and decisions.
Immediately following the viewing of the film, DR. RAYMOND WINBUSH, psychologist and Director, Institute for Urban Affairs, Morgan State University will facilitate a discussion among Nashville educators, civic leaders, public policy-makers and others regarding the educational, public policy and public health issues impacting young Black males.
This event is for EVERYONE: educators, juvenile justice officials, legislators and policymakers, civic leaders, clergy and parents of young, middle school age Black boys. Please come out and join the conversation! YOU can make a difference in the lives of Black boys in Nashville.
