GlocallyNewark: ManUp


Filmmaker Tonia Grady said the documentary “is nothing more than a call-to-action by one woman who is watching helplessly as her daughter is caught in the throws of this merciless disease — I like to call fatherlessness…I sink to a new low every time my child asks me, “Mommy where is my daddy, and why doesn’t he come to see me?” I have always despised the vicious cycle of fatherlessness, but never did I think that a child of mine would fall victim to it.”

Great writeup by Ninapilar about Man Up, a 10-city documentary about the heartbreaking issue of fatherlessness, featuring Newark Now’s Comprehensive Center for Fathers.
