In partnership with ITVS and the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, WTTW invites you to attend a free screening and discussion about the new Independent Lens documentary The New Black by director Yoruba Richen and producer Yvonne Welbon.

The New Black examines 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 in Maryland.
