It's not TV. It's HBO.

HBO has just aired a new documentary called The Black List, from photographer/filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and NYT film Critic Elvis Mitchell whose efforts attempt to explore "an answer to the persistent taint that western culture has applied to the word 'black.'"

The Black List: Volume One premiered in 2008 at the Sundance Film Festival, where Variety called it "an impeccably mounted survey of voices from across the spectrum of African-American accomplishment...a rich and revealing work of portraiture."

I urge everyone to visit to find out more.

Here are some great clips:
