A study of race and equality in the Independent Lens' film "The New Black"

"The New Black" examines the African American community in Maryland, and how it is grappling with the gay rights issue in light of the gay marriage movement and the fight over civil rights. The Independent Lens film documents activists, families, and clergy on both sides of the marriage equality issue, as the African American community comes to terms with this highly charged issue.

Independent Lens' "The New Black" airs Sunday night (June 15) on KMOS-TV channel 6.1

Public television is more than just crime dramas and sit-coms. It strives to present news and commentary from a variety of perspectives, as well as follow the major issues of our day. If you appreciate that mission and the information that it provides, I hope you'll support your local public television station, KMOS-TV.
