The third season of Black Folk Don’t, the satirical documentary web series challenging common stereotypes of African Americans, premieres today, Monday, December 2.
This season, the series heads to California, with engaging interviews of celebrities like John Norwood Fisher of the punk band Fishbone, director Ava DuVernay, actress Lisa Gay Hamilton and renowned feminist Sikivu Hutchinson, as well as everyday black folk.
The series, a project of TuckerGurl LLC, is funded by National Black Programming Consortium (NBPC) and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and will run weekly on Mondays for six weeks through January 6.
NBPC serves as executive producer.
The brainchild of director-producer Angela Tucker, the series this season questions whether black people go green (December 2), live to the end of a horror film (December 9), do plastic surgery (December 16), do feminism (December 23), adopt (December 30) and join the NRA (January 6).
A special episode on Thursday, December 12, will be a behind-the-scenes mini-episode about California.
The series is available on BlackPublicMedia.org, the official website of NBPC, You Tube, and PBS.org, as well as at blackfolkdont.com.
