November 4, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The story of how African American communities are grappling with LGBTQ rights issues in light of the marriage equality movement and the fight over civil rights. The film documents activists, families, and clergy on both sides of the campaign to legalize same-sex marriage and examines homophobia in the black community’s institutional pillar – the black church. It also reveals the strategy of some Christian activist groups of exploiting this phenomenon in order to pursue a political agenda that opposes LGBTQ+ rights. Talk back following the film.
