This documentary takes the viewers into the pews and onto the streets as it recounts the historic fight to win marriage equality in Maryland, charting the evolution of the divisive issue within the African American community.

The New Black is a documentary that uncovers the complicated and often combative histories of the African-American and LGBT civil rights movements.  Specifically, the film 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.
