The web series Oldhead display the authenticity of the urban cultures throughout the Philadelphia communities. An Oldhead is an authoritative figure in the Philadelphia community who passes down wisdom to the younger generation. We want to give the audience insight on some of the socio-economic issues inner city youth face such as drugs, violence, and lack of resources. Majority of the youth growing up in urban communities lack male authority figures in their life. In producing this show we aim to call back all the male leaders such as coaches, mentors and other authority figures that wants to help our young people become productive citizens.
