This film seeks to stem that flow… The innovative film tells the story of Black men from different walks of life, men who have ‘been through the fire’ of growing up Black and male in the oftentimes hostile environment of the inner city but through strength and perseverance built for themselves their own versions of the American dream. The film employs insightful interviews, contemporary images and archival footage, the biographical life lessons of men like novelist Trey Ellis, Columbia professor Dr. Ronald Mincy and BET personality Jeff Johnson among others, to create a moving and engaging narrative of what it means to go from Black boyhood to Black manhood in America today. Hip hop vernacular often describes life as a young black man in America as warlike. And like the classic war film, Fog of War, the documentary 4 Our Sons is an illustration of a powerful distillation of life lessons from the POV of the veterans of this social war who have been there. Our documentary is a cinematic helping hand for the Black sons about to enter the war zone from the veteran Black sons who have been there and triumphed over society’s ills on these battlefields of poverty and crime.
