Check out the broadcast premier of "Woke Up Black."

Don't miss the documentary film "Woke Up Black," airing this Sunday, June 26th at 4:00PM on channel 11.  Produced and directed by  filmmaker Mary Morten, "Woke Up Black" has been touring throughout the country and will now be making it's first televised broadcast.

About the film:

"Woke Up Black" followed five black youth for two years. During this time we witnessed interactions with family members, educational institutions, and the legal and judicial system. We saw the social networking that is critical to the successful development of these youth and we provided a rare opportunity to hear youth speak out on some of the important and potentially life- altering topics of the day. The film underscores the humanity that we all share with each other regardless of race or age. For some of the youth profiled, despite extraordinary circumstances, they remain hopeful."
