TV Tonight: The Black List on HBO

Back at Sundance, the documentary The Black List, Vol. 1 was getting glowing praise from all those who were lucky enough to make it into a screening. HBO had already nabbed the rights to show the film, and tonight, it makes its broadcast premiere.

The film is a series of 22 short portraits of renowned figures from sports, politics, business, government, and the arts talking about race and the role it has played in their lives and work. Among the interviewees: Keenen Ivory Wayans, Toni Morrison, Chris Rock, Serena Williams, National Urban League President Marc Morial, and many more. NPR host and journalist Elvis Mitchell conducted the interviews, but he's never seen or heard in the film; instead, the camera stays trained on the subjects as they speak their stories one by one.

The best way to get a feel for the film before its 9 p.m. premiere is to watch a few clips from the portraits, so to see a making-of promo and excerpts from the interviews with Chris Rock and Serena Williams, just
