You have every right to be you. And no one should deter you from being you. You have to be you. And you can never be afraid to be you.” -Mother of dead black boy
This is a journey of self-discovery. For a black boy who does not know himself is a black man who does not love himself. Here we’ll meet a bright eyed, bold, and adventurous young boy and spend a day in his shoes. Watch how he grows. Discover what happens when life leaves you in the dark and forces you to find the light on your own.
