THE NEW BLACK
Directed by Yoruba Richen
USA, 2013, 80 minutes, documentary, unrated

A profile of an African-American community grappling with gay rights and gay marriage in the context of civil rights. From the pews to the streets, it introduces activists, families, and clergy on both sides of the campaign to legalize gay marriage in Maryland, examines homophobia in the church and the Christian right's strategy of exploiting it, and charts the evolution of this historic fight and divisive issue within the black community.

Community Partners: VCS, Spring Valley NAACP, Nyack NAACP

A post-screening discussion will include Willie Trotman, President of Spring Valley NAACP, Rev. Owen C. Thompson of Grace Church in Nyack, and Vanessa Green, VCS Racial Justice Organizer; moderated by Phyllis B. Frank, Associate Executive Director, VCS.

". . . a film that leaves room for dialogue and change as it embraces the entire black community, even in disagreement. . . "  Ronnie Scheib, Variety
