Daddy, There's A Noise Outside

An Engaging Children's Story of Unrest in Their Community

Kenneth Braswell’s newest venture “Daddy, There’s a Noise Outside,” takes the complex issue of protesting and breaks the conversation down so that a 1st grader can understand.

The story begins when two children are awakened by noises in the middle of the night coming from outside the window of their inner-city neighborhood. Both their Dad and Mom spend the next morning explaining to them what was taking place in their community.

Spit'in Anger - Documentary Film

Spit’in Anger is the exploration into the uncharted space of fatherlessness. Through the story of one of America’s premier leaders in the responsible fatherhood movement--Kenneth Braswell--we learn that the filmmaker and healer is about to receive a lesson in healing himself.

It is a full documentary exploring the anger harness by Black Men and Boys as a result of not having their fathers in their lives. Film includes expert commentary by Dr. Jeff Gardere, Iyanla Vanzant, Terrie Williams, Gary Sheffield, Judge Mablean Ephriam and others.

The more anger towards the past you carry in your heart, the less capable you are of loving in the present.

Faces of a Fatherless Nation

A Photoblog

Around the nation and even around the world we are faced with the impact of father absence. While research gives us some sense of what contributes to the lives of vulnerable children, we don’t definitively know to what extent father absence has played a role in shaping a fatherless nation.

Through photography and video Fathers Incorporated seeks to show the economic, societal, cultural, and geographic reality of Fatherlessness. In addition the short narratives will give us a snapshot into their lives.
