Created by director/producer Angela Tucker, we featured season 1 of this series last year; fans will be pleased to know that season 2 premiered this morning, and episode 1 is embedded below.
Black Public Media is thrilled to announce the launch of the second season 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. The entire series is available online at blackfolkdont.com and BlackPublicMedia.org.
In some cases, “Black folks don’t” is a statistical fact — black folk don’t go to the doctor in the numbers they should. In other cases, “Black folk don’t” is an anecdotal idea and concept that is based on a negative stereotype.
Season 2 is made up of audience suggestions, episodes covering things “black folk don’t do” like swim, go camping, have eating disorders, get married, do atheism, and commit suicide.
Watch season 2, episode 1, titled, Black Folk Don’t: Swim, below:
