From the mind of Academy Award-winning playwright, Tarell Alvin McCraney (“Moonlight”), comes the new series, “David Makes Man,” premiering August 14 on the OWN network.

It’s the raw story of 14-year-old prodigy David, a young boy living in the South Florida projects. Haunted by the death of his best friend while attending a magnet school with people who don’t look like him or live the life he does, David must face a tough decision:

Choose between the streets that raised him… or the higher education that may be the ticket out of poverty for him and his mother.

With honesty, humor, and pain, “David Makes Man” tackles the very real dilemma so many Black men face every day. It’s a must-see show for any Black person living in America. Catch the trailer below! And watch the August 14 series premiere for free on Philo’s live streaming platform - here’s how:
