NBC Series on Black Women

RahemaCheck it out. The five-part series, African American Women: Where They Stand, starts tonight on NBC. I’m sure there will be some interesting discussion across the blogosphere following the broadcast (hopefully this site included).

For years, Black women have told their daughters they may have to take care of themselves without a husband so it’s imperative that young women develop skills.

It is happening.

The numbers of Black women earning college degrees and taking leadership roles in the workplace are impressive.

And the huge achievement gap between African-American women and men is astounding. Black women are making gains in record numbers. It may suggest to some that Black women have gotten the empowerment message and have met all accomplishment goals. That would be only half right. According to research, there is still a lot of work to do. [source: NBC]

    I cannot wait to see this. One of my issues with Morton’s documentary is how it degraded black women in order to uplift black men. I only hope this series does not turn against black men in order to highlight the achievements of black women.

    Unfortunately, it looks as though I missed a few parts of the series. Hopefully, it will run again in the future.
