A new PBS docuseries is seeking to shed light on authentic Black fatherhood.
POPS: Fatherhood, the Untold Story is set to premiere on PBS/Indie Lens Storycast on Oct. 26.
The 11-part series was produced and directed by Peabody award-winning filmmaker Garland McLaurin. It tells three stories of African-American dads who come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. All of the subjects are “deeply engaged in the beautiful struggle of fatherhood,” according to a press release sent to EBONY announcing the documentary.Continue reading
It’s funny how many of my friends over the years have told me that my Dad was a father-figure for them since so many of them grew up in households without a father present. When women share with me their frustrations and disappointments with black men, while I sympathize with them I can’t exactly relate because fortunately I’ve always been surrounded by black men who were great fathers, sons and spouses. PBS has recently taken the opportunity to showcase black men in a role that too many women unfortunately only see regularly on sitcoms like Blackish or The Cosby Show.Continue reading

It’s an event that I unfortunately couldn’t attend last week, but that I’m more than glad to support however possible, and that you should know about, given its overall intent.
Earlier this year, out of a field of 163 applicants, the National Black Programming Consortium (NBPC), a Harlem-based media arts nonprofit, selected 8 winners for its new incubator program, NBPC 360. The new funding initiative is designed to identify innovative storytellers and to generate quality serial, digital and multi-platform content for television and the Web. The selected projects then entered a 6-week boot camp, where they worked with veteran producers in their bid to win development funds of between $50,000 and $150,000 for their series pilots.Continue reading
