By Kenrya Rankin Oct 21, 2016

A lot has changed for Black people living in the United States in the years between the Civil Rights Movement and The Movement for Black Lives. Now, a new documentary from PBS is poised to explore those changes.

Not to be confused with the similarly titled Maya Angelou documentary, which was released earlier this month, “Black America Since MLK: And Still I Rise” will hit small screens on November 15 and 22. Hosted by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., the two-part, four-hour series will draft activists, politicians, celebrities and scholars to show how the last 50 years have shaped the current state of Black America. The official trailer was released yesterday (October 20). Watch it above.
