Black Folk Don't

Do black people tip any less than others?  What about swimming? Camping?
Or going to the doctor?

Black folk don't...Black Folk Don’t is a web-only series that explores complex expressions and stereotypes rooted in African-American culture. “Black folk don’t”… camp? Tip? Who defines these colloquialisms? The explanation is complicated but worth the attempt. “Black Folk Don’t...” is an open conversation that invites everyone to take a second look at the grey areas between us all, no matter the race, and most importantly to do it with a sense of humor. This documentary web series is a special presentation of BlackPublicMedia.org, directed and produced by Angela Tucker, with support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
