A Seat at the Table with LGBTQ Friends in Faith provides a platform for audiences to consider challenging questions about race, identity, faith, and sexual orientation. We will review clips from the 2013 documentary film The New Black that describes how the African-American community comes to terms with gay marriage and civil rights. Join an insightful dialogue with filmmaker Yoruba Richen, Bishop Yvette Flunder with moderator Earl Fowlkes, and a special performance by Lee Mokobe.

This program augments the National Museum of African American History and Culture’s mission to explore the American experience through the African American lens, and what it means to be an American. “A Seat at the Table” sparks critical thinking and creative conversations about fairness and an exchange of ideas for making our world more equitable.
