Black Marriage Film Gets Nationwide Premiere

Nationwide -- On March 28th, viewers in 21 cities nationwide will attend the Black Marriage Day premiere of Tyler New Media's You Saved Me, a documentary taking an emotional, in-depth look into the marriages of eight African-American couples. A follow up to Essence bloggers Lamar and Ronnie Tyler's 2009 best selling documentary, Happily Ever After: A Positive Image of Black MarriageYou Saved Me explores marriage's trials, changes, successes, and ultimately the individual healing that comes out of true love and commitment.

Troubled by low marriage rates, high incidences of divorce, and a lack of positive images of Black marriage in the media, Lamar and Ronnie Tyler set out to counter negative stereotypes with their now award winning blog, Black and Married With Kids, and their first film, "Happily Ever After". African-American couples nationwide have embraced the Tyler's efforts, making their website the largest independent Black marriage and parenting site on the web and turning their first film into a best seller. The couple produced the highly anticipated You Saved Me in response to the overwhelmingly positive reaction to their first film, and the continued need to show real-life representations of marriage to Black audiences.

The Black Marriage Day premiere, which takes place at select venues in DC, New York, Dallas, Chicago, and other cities across the United States, kicks off a national tour of the movie. You Saved Me will be released on DVD at Amazon.com on Monday March 29th. The movie trailer is available atwww.yousavedmemovie.com.

Capital BookFest presents the Maryland/DC area premiere at 3pm, Sunday March 28th at the Publick Playhouse, 5445 Landover Road in Cheverly, MD.
