Free screening of The New Black



WHYY and ITVS Community Cinema, in partnership with The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Delaware in Wilmington, present the PBS documentary The New Black at the University of Delaware Wilmington campus. This event is FREE and open to the public. Registration is requested.  

ABOUT THE FILM:
The New Black is a documentary that tells the story of how the African American community is grappling with the gay rights issue in light of the gay marriage movement and the fight over civil rights. The film documents activists, families, and clergy on both sides of the campaign to legalize gay marriage and examines homophobia in the black community’s institutional pillar — the black church — and reveals the Christian right wing’s strategy of exploiting this phenomenon in order to pursue an anti-gay political agenda.

The New Black takes viewers into the pews, onto the streets, and provides a seat at the kitchen table as it tells the story of the historic fight to win marriage equality in Maryland, charting the evolution of this divisive issue within the black community.
