Little Brother: The Fire Next Time

LITTLE BROTHER is a series of short documentary films dedicated to giving Black boys a unique voice. Beginning in 2010, filmmakers Nicole Franklin and Jasmin Tiggett started taking an annual look at Black boys as young as nine years old for a one-on-one conversation demystifying what society tends to rob them of: LOVE.

THE LITTLE BROTHER: THE FIRE NEXT TIME was filmed in Muskogee, OK, where the Cherokee Nation and the Descendants of Freedmen of the Five Civilized Tribes have been in court concerning the Freedmen’s rights as Cherokee citizens. Our young African Cherokees present a candid discussion on love, tribe, family, and race.

"First Impressions and the African American Male: A Guide to Experiencing the Truth about Little Brother" is a curriculum guide preparing groups and classes for viewing LITTLE BROTHER chapters. The text also contains a list of Discussion Questions from educator Nancy Montgomery and an Activity Guide compiled by the Little Brother team. Order your copy here:

“...presents Black boys as dignified and fully human... an exception, rather than the rule."
- Byron Hurt, Independent Filmmaker, BEYOND BEATS AND RHYMES

"A wonderful documentary film series that gives young black boys a real platform to talk about an array of subjects – love, life, and simply put, how they see the world around them."
- Shannon Effinger, Society HAE

"Our culture comes through in our youth, and we’re motivated by young people doing great things… You’ll definitely feel the experience of LITTLE BROTHER."
- COMMON, Rapper, Actor & Activist
