CL TOPIC: DEAR DADDY (TRAILER) – CHILDREN BORN IN SINGLE-PARENT HOUSEHOLDS – IS THERE A SOLUTION?

Statistics show that 82.3% of African American children born in the U.S. since 1990 will not live in the same household as their biological fathers before they graduate high school. As a result, these children are affected by this harsh reality and lead lives of deep resentment, sadness, hate and anger towards the father that didn’t want to stay around.

Director Janks Morton took it upon himself to film Dear Daddy, a documentary about the life long effects of fatherlessness on women. The film follows the dramatic journeys of eight young women from the city streets of Washington, DC, between the ages of 14-24, as they struggle to overcome poverty, poor educational systems, no healthcare, and the most difficult life circumstance they have been dealt…the absence of their fathers.



Morton takes these young women through 4 phases: letter writing, letter reading, an intervention session and finding their father. Watch the trailer for this heartbreaking documentary. Props to Morton for making positive moves on the issue, but….
