Screening of "Daddy Don't Go" with Q&A featuring Actor Malik Yoba
“Daddy Don’t Go” is a feature length documentary that chronicles the lives of four disadvantaged men in New York City as they struggle to be good fathers. Actor Malik Yoba, the co-executive producer of the documentary will be a special guest. Join us as “Daddy Don’t Go” shatters the deadbeat dad stereotype, redefining what it means to be a good father for all men. (Maybe inappropriate for children under 13)
