| "The Black Godfather" is pure gold.
"The Black Godfather" is off the wall. An incredible and informative film that will surprise you and make you wish you could have a friend like Clarence Avant.

In this documentary, follow the life of Clarence Avant; the ultimate mentor behind-the-scenes of the music, film, and TV industries and politics.

Uncensored and uninterrupted, "The Black Godfather" digs deep into the life of a man not many people know of. This film talks about the struggles he faced and the successes that came after deliberately never giving up. Avant is admired by all the people you look up to. He's the rock and mentor to many of those people. Overall, a fascinating doc that everyone should see.
