About the Event
BLACK AS U R poses to Black America a highly confrontational and much avoided question. Why do we as a people protest against racial injustice, but disregard the injustices experienced by black queer people? After all, we are just as black as you are. In this incendiary documentary, filmmaker Micheal Rice takes the audience on a journey through the homophobia that characterizes many black spaces, both contemporarily and via an autobiographic look into his own upbringing in the south.
BLACK AS U R is the first step in confronting the African American community about queerphobia, via the seering stories of queer black people.
