Black Is...Black Ain't

1994 Rated NR 1hr 27m

In this stirring documentary, director Marlon Riggs shines a light on traditional black stereotypes -- even those held within the African-American community -- and offers a new take on "blackness" itself. Released the same year Riggs died from AIDS, the film also examines homosexuality and includes penetrating commentary from leading black voices such as bell hooks, Angela Davis and Cornel West.
