"I think that when I watch television, or participate in the media culture in America, sometimes the way that I've seen black people being portrayed in this country feels very strange and exotic because it has nothing to do with the life that I've lived or the people that I've known," says Kehinde Wiley in the new PBS documentary, "An Economy of Grace." In his previous works, Wiley has tackled the depiction of African-American men in portraiture by shooting images of everyday people and juxtaposing them into backgrounds and wallpapers of historical periods. This time around, he sets out to reveal to the world another side of femininity. The film premieres on PBS Friday at 9/8c. For the trailer and more information visit: http://to.pbs.org/1q8FeIz
