Posted on August 1, 2012

The National Black Programming Consortium will present an online screening and discussion of Black Folk Don’t: Get Married on Wednesday, August 1 at 1pm PT / 4pm ET. Series creator Angela Tucker will participate in the event, which will take place here.

  

The National Black Programming Consortium is hosting a social screening of the season finale of Black Folk Don’t, a satirical, documentary web series that challenges common stereotypes. Provocative, irreverent, and engaging, Black Folk Don’t asks uncomfortable questions and stirs dialogue about common assumptions of the behavior of black people. This episode of the Black Folk Don't web series tackles a long-standing institution, marriage. Do black folk get married? You wouldn't think so based on all the media coverage around unmarried black women. Join series creator Angela Tucker as she discusses the episode, the issue, and the future of the next Black Folk Don't season!

Participants can join for free by signing in with Facebook or directly on the site, interacting with other viewers and panelists in real-time, while watching the film. Viewers can comment, ask questions, take polls, and even express their feelings about what they’re watching through a variety of tools on the site. This is an entirely new way of experiencing documentary films and it is inherently social.
