Through a series of narrative vignettes pulled directly from the writer director Tim Alexander’s own life, inter-cut with documentary footage that he shot across the country, DIARY OF A TIRED BLACK MAN is a simple story about the complex relationships between black men and black women. It follows the life and relationships of a successful black man as he tries to find a happy place to rest his heart.
He is constantly challenged by the anger he finds in the black women he gets involved with. From his wife, whom he divorces, to the other women he tries to date after her nothing but drama, drama, drama!
So what's a black man to do? He tries dating outside of his race, which brings up a different set of issues for him to deal with. It's an interesting ride into the reality of black relationships that a lot of people will relate to, and a lot of people will learn from.
