VOR Guest: Ali Jackson is currently working on a documentary called Black Boys Don’t Cry that has been in the making for since 2003. The film is subtitled The Untold Truth because statistics show that less than 1% of sexual assaults on black boys are reported. As an active member of the black community, Ali Jackson has been impacted by the increased rate of violence, crime, suicide, acting out and predatory behavior of young black males who have been raised in a culture that does not allow them to cry for the help they desperately need. The impact has not been as a result of being the one in six who is abused, but rather a genuinely concerned male role model and mentor to children through various avenues. Both the mental and physical damage done by their attackers may even contribute to the increased spread of AIDS and other diseases within the black community, further perpetuating the issues discussed in his film.
