See the Preview for The New Black

The New Black explores how the African American community debates the marriage equality movement and the fight over LGBT rights. The film documents activists, families, and clergy on both sides of campaign to legalize gay marriage and examines homophobia in the black community’s institutional pillar — the church — while reflecting on how this may have been exploited by political conservatives.

      Watching the Detropia segment on Independent Lens made me sad for the City I spent the first 17 years of my life growing up in. My only criticism is to the captions … too white / washed out and the type font too blurry to read without getting out of my chair and standing a foot from the television screen.

      I am watching POWERLESS I don’t understand why this city does not have solar panels. I saw another show The women of India’s Barefoot College bring light to remote villages

      Being trained as solar-power engineers enables women from rural India and Africa to introduce electricity in isolated areas

      Gallery: India’s Barefoot engineers.

      THIS AREA IS NOT ISOLATED but it could use alternative sources of electricity.
