LITTLE BROTHER is a series of 15-minute documentary films dedicated to giving Black boys a unique voice. Beginning in 2010, filmmakers Nicole Franklin and Jai Tiggett started taking 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.
The films and curriculum are available for educational institutions, houses of worship, for-profit and not-for-profit corporations, as well as home video use. The film team is available for in-person appearances accompanying screenings. These Little Brother forums are titled An EPIPHANY Conversation and are fiscally sponsored by Fractured Atlas.
