Welcome to our first edition of Web411!  Every Friday we’ll be putting together some of the top stories from around the web and sharing the links here so you won’t miss a thing.  Yes, I know it’s Monday, but I didn’t want you to go empty handed!  ;)  So, here’s some interesting posts from around the web to keep you busy.

The Dark Girls preview was officially released.  The documentary, which will be released this fall, is highly anticipated and aims to address the color biases that exist in society and particularly within the Black community.

Los Americans, a family drama based around the multifaceted Latino American community, debuted this week.  The series can be viewed online for free and focuses on an assimilated Latino family, their struggles to define their identity and live the modern American life.

Huffington Post shared an interesting article from, John L. Esposito, author of ‘The Future of Islam, about the discrimination that is faced by Muslim Americans.  The article addresses some common stereotypes and assumptions head-on and is definitely worth a read.

Frances Kai-Hwa Wang addresses the importance of ethnic voices in the media and some interesting, but largly unrecognized, news in her column on AnnArbor.com.
