You are invited to a Bellingham screening of The New Black at the Pickford Film Center . There is no charge to attend.

The New Black is a documentary that tells the story of 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 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. Learn more about this film. The New Black premieres on Friday, June 20, on KCTS 9.

The film preview is followed by a casual audience Q&A. This screening is presented by KCTS 9 and ITVS' Community Cinema.
