Little Brother: The Street (Chapter 2)

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 Jasmin 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.

LITTLE BROTHER: THE STREET is a follow up to the debut film, Little Brother: Things Fall Apart. With an introduction by actor/Hip-Hop artist COMMON, this second chapter of the series has the camera accompanying young men during their walk home from school on the very active streets of Chicago's South Side. The Chicago youth discuss their thoughts on peer pressure, family dynamics, dating, the perceived media assault on their community and staying safe on the streets.

Little Brother: The Street is filmed entirely on the iPhone4.

Supported in part by a grant from the Open Society Foundations/Campaign for Black Male Achievement. The film production team is available for in-person appearances accompanying screenings.
"First Impressions and the African American Male: A Guide to Experiencing the Truth about Little Brother" is a curriculum guide preparing groups and classes for viewing LITTLE BROTHER chapters. The text also contains a list of Discussion Questions from educator Nancy Montgomery and an Activity Guide compiled by the Little Brother team. Order your copy here:
