We're filmmakers. That means sharing our passions with our audience means the most. That's why we've decided to take our work on THE BIRTHRIGHT PROJECT to Facebook. This project was 100% funded by Southern Peach Entertainment as a GIVE TO OUR BLACK SONS. We hope you'll help share this important discussion with your friends and families.

GET INVOLVED

We are here to rebuild the BLACK community one effort at a time.  

Find out how you can help make a change #startswu (starts with you).

Contact us and tell us what you do.   

The Birthright documentary series is being produced as a gift to our sons. A "birthright," is a right or privilege that you have just because you were born. ALL HUMANS have the same rights and we should act accordingly.

Our show is not merely a commentary on reality (although we will discuss current events), our mission will be to make a solid effort to give back to young black men, what some feel has been taken away. Future episodes we will hold constructive, moderated discussions where we will identify topics of interest, allow for open discussions in a comfortable setting, map out constructive solutions, and make individual commitments to be accountable to the solutions. We want to make positive steps that will build towards improving communities.

The common adage that, "It takes a man to raise a man," will be the focus of the first episode. We will hear from young men from ages 10-21, find out their interests, strengths, quirks, and pain. Men 22-80+ will give young men a word of advice. No topic is off limits. We are asking men to speak to their YOUNGER SELF. What advice would you give yourself in hindsight. Why do we want to hear from ALL men? Our team has identified that the most important people that enter a human beings life are the "everyday people." The neighbor next door, the coach at the park, parents, siblings, teachers, extended family and friends at home, AS WELL AS, "That man that drives by school everyday in that shiny Porsche."

Our focus is on healing and rebuilding a community, however that healing starts in the home and it STARTS WITH YOU ‪#‎startswu‬ ‪#‎spe‬ ‪#‎southernpeach‬
