In Mason News | by Justin Lafreniere | 14 October 2013 

The George Mason University Film & Media Studies program will welcome award-winning documentarian Yoruba Richen and screen her new film, “The New Black” as part of the Visiting Filmmakers Series in an event that will explore the shifting relationship between race and sexuality in the United States.

The event will be held on Thursday, Nov. 7, at 4:30 p.m. in the Johnson Center Cinema. It is free and open to the public.

The Visiting Filmmakers Series brings a new film and artist to campus each semester. “We see the series as an opportunity for discussions among students at Mason as well as community members, as we have different populations interested in the films and filmmakers,” says FAMS Director Cynthia Fuchs.
