Filmmaker Yoruba Richen is the 2014 Colliver Lecturer

NewBlackPosterWhat happens when issues of race, politics, and sexual orientation not only intersect, but collide?

This was the question facing many African-American voters in Maryland in 2012, when ballot measure Question 6, which sought to legalize gay marriage, came to a vote. The struggles navigated by the activists, families and clergy on both sides of the campaign, from pulpits to kitchen tables, are chronicled in filmmaker Yoruba Richen’s award-winning documentary, “The New Black.”

The film will be screened Monday, Nov. 3, at 7 p.m. in the DeRosa University Center Ballroom as the 2014 Colliver Lecture. Richen will be on hand to introduce the film and participate in a question-and-answer session afterward. The lecture is free and open to the public.
