The Making of a King documentary was birthed out of a deep sense of empathy for men of color and the lack of positive representation in media and Black culture. With the gap between men and women of color growing in the areas of education and professional achievement, their stories are rarely highlighted, and when they are, they seem to have a negative connotation attached.
The candid interviews featured in this documentary include men from various professional fields—doctors, lawyers, engineers, creatives, and entrepreneurs—sharing about their experiences in relationships, the workplace, family, and their everyday lives as Black men. The Making of a King's purpose is to dissolve myths and begin a healthy dialogue about the current state of Black men and how their community can come together in support of their excellence and success.
