vanishing-black-maleAre 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.
