One look at the headlines and you’ll think that black folks don’t get married. From the media’s fixation on the so-called single, black woman meme to books and articles wondering if Marriage is for White Folks, positive images of black people in love and married are few and far between.
Because of this Lamar and Ronnie tyler took it upon themselves to shine the spotlight on black married couples and shed light on what really happens in marriage. In their newest film, Still Standing, the Tylers decided to create a film that covers a subject near to their heart: marriage.
According to a press release, Still Standing profiles couples who “provide transparent, insightful conversation about what it takes to have lasting power in current day marriages. Through infidelity, chronic illness, financial crisis, blended families and more these couples explain WHY and more importantly HOW they are STILL STANDING.”
The film feature Speech of the group Arrested Development, Kindred the Family Soul, Yolanda Thomas and Dr. Sherry L. Blake.
Check out the trailer for the film which will go on sale May 1st.
