Ironically as we were fighting to pass the HERO, across the street from City Hall at the Houston Public Library downtown branch the Houston premiere of Yoruba Richen's film The New Black was being shown.
The HERO fun didn't end until 8 PM, way after the film ended, and I was bummed about missing it
I'll finally get a chance to see it thanks to my local PBS station. The New Black will make its debut on PBS's Independent Lens show this Sunday June 15 at 10 PM ET / 9 PM CDT.
It focuses on the marriage battle in Maryland the Black community conversation around it. and features a few people I know.
I'm definitely going to be tuned in for it, and hope you'll watch as well.
