I'm glad to see this edutaining series return! 

The details via press release...

The third season of Black Folk Don’t, the satirical documentary web series challenging common stereotypes of African Americans, premieres on Monday, December 2

Alternately provocative, irreverent, comical and profound, the series heads to California for its third season, 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 runs weekly on Mondays for six weeks through January 6. NBPC serves as executive producer.

The brainchild of director-producer Angela Tucker, who specializes in creative, bold and varied social issue, film-based projects from public service announcements to features, Black Folk Don’t is designed to inspire dialogue around a number of controversial issues. Featured in Time magazine’s “10 Ideas That Are Changing Your Life,” on NPR, TheRoot.com, Huffington Post and in PBS’s Online Film Festival, 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.

“As only about 6.6 percent of the population, black people are far from the majority in California and that intrigued me. And I found that people in Oakland, Los Angeles and San Francisco had such diverse views of the world, leading to a real clash of ideas this season among the interviewees, more so than in past seasons,” said Tucker.

“Season three of ‘Black Folk Don’t’ is going to spark conversations in homes and offices around the country as well as online, as people take sides and even question the audacity of the assertions that are raised in the show,” said Nonso Christian Ugbode, Black Public Media Director of Digital Media.

The series is shown on BlackPublicMedia.org, the official website of NBPC, You Tube, and PBS.org, as well as at blackfolkdont.com.
