Wednesday, June 18 at 6:00pm

Central Library, Wheeler Auditorium 400 Cathedral Street, Baltimore, MD 21201

Maryland Public Television hosts this free screening of a new documentary from filmmaker Yoruba Richen. "The New Black" tells the story of how the African American community is debating the marriage equality movement and the fight over LGBT rights. The film documents activists, families, and clergy on both sides of the campaign to legalize gay marriage and examines homophobia in the black church.

Following the screening, meet filmmaker Yoruba Richen and Katrina Bell McDonald, associate professor of sociology at Johns Hopkins University, and participate in a discussion about the film. The panel will also include Kevin Clemons, founder and chairman, Baltimore Black Pride.
