Spit'in Anger presents at

Fatherhood Image Film Festival in Harlem

In an effort to promote public feedback; Executive Director of Fathers Incorporated, Kenneth Braswell took to the stage to talk about the forthcoming documentary; Spit'in Anger. Hosted by STRIVE International; the Fatherhood Image Film Festival was held at the Mist/Harlem theater in New York.  The festival was designed to address the impact, access and perception of fathers in the media. "We are a long way from where we used to be; but no where near where we should," according to Braswell. "We still struggle with finding a sensitive, empathetic and accurate portrayal of fathers in our society. Even less so when it come to black fathers."

Several other films with fatherhood themes were highlighted including Barbasol, From Fatherless to Fatherhood and Courageous.
