With funding from the Predominantly Black Institution (PBI) Program Formula Grant, the CHAMPS program at Bloomfield College is hosting an independent film titled From Fatherless to Fatherhood with a discussion with the filmmaker Kobie Brown.

The film's creator, Kobie Brown, and the film have been profiled by CNN, Ebony and Essence Magazine.
