Hoodwinked- A very thought provoking Documentary


“Hoodwinked” is a film that should be a must-see for every person of color in America. The film asks questions about long-held beliefs about black male graduation and incarceration rates and shows you why everything you’ve been led to believe is wrong. Filmmaker Janks Morton brings together the top black male scholars in the country to discuss the plight of black boys and men, thus elevating the conversation about how we can move our communities forward. The film features the following top black male scholars: Dr. Boyce Watkins, Marc Lamont Hill, Steve Perry, Jawanza Kunjufu, and Ivory Toldson. Each scholar brings his unique intellectual gifts to help viewers gain a deeper understanding of a very complex situation.
