There are more than 1.7 million children in the United States with an incarcerated parent. Approximately 10 million—one in eight—of the nation’s children have experienced parental incarceration at some point in their lives. Rates are exacerbated in poor and minority communities. One in 43 (2.3 percent) American children has a parent incarcerated in state or federal prison.

" For me this was a reality of the environment I was raised in. I had numerous amounts of friends and family members that had fathers that were incarcerated. I would hear from them a scaled down version when I was younger. Your play gave me the real version from an adult perspective. Thank you for creating this play for the world to know. - Vash Turner "
Vash Turner, CEO
" I encouraged every man in my life to take their sons to see the play. It's not only for Black fathers and sons though...it's for Fathers and Sons... I salute you Coley and Ahmarr. -June Hawkins "
June Hawkins, Citizen
" But never have I been so moved by a film as I was by this one. After I reviewed it, I told our staff we had to do something we'd never done before--partner with its creators to produce a version of it that others can use in their work with dads, their children, and their families. -Chris Brown "
Chris Brown, President - N.F.I.
