Delighted to be able Hi to catch up with my old friend, Reggie Hudlin and attend the screening of his documentary “The Back Godfather” and learn about Clarence Avent.
For decades, entertainers, athletes, and political figures have turned to a single man for advice during the most pivotal moments in their lives and careers. The Black Godfather charts the exceptional and unlikely rise of Clarence Avant, a music executive who, until now, has deliberately chosen to remain behind the scenes as he influenced legends such as Bill Withers, Quincy Jones, Muhammad Ali, Hank Aaron, and Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.

* Each year the ABFF will curate a series of screenings and conversations based on cause-related themes relevant to communities of color. This year’s topic, Fatherhood: The Foundation of the Black Family hosted by Omar Epps, will aim to change the narrative of black fathers by highlighting the importance of their presence and contribution to the black family, the black community, and thereby positively affecting society’s view of black fathers’ in total. Following the special screenings, Omar Epps will lead a conversation with the directors of the films and experts in the area of family relationships.Hosted by: Omar Epps (Traffik)Moderator: Skye Dennis (Myra’s Angel)
