Coming Soon: The New Black
Madison's Central Library at 201 W. Mifflin St. will show the film at no cost on May 8, 2014 at 6:30 pm. Seekardia's director will be one of the panelists to help facilitate discussion about the film.
The New Black is a documentary that tells the story of black Americans struggling with gay rights issues in light of the gay marriage movement and 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.
