Black in America 2: What Did You Think?
Tonight CNN premiered Black in America 2 (2nd half airs Thursday, July 23), featuring stories including underprivileged Brooklyn teens’ exposure to and service in South Africa, a young affluent black male’s experience in a predominantly white private university, and the Management Leadership of Tomorrow MBA prep program. After last year’s first installment of the Black in America series, many criticized, with some feeling like CNN did not depict an accurate portrayal of “blacks in America.” Others were excited that CNN spent the time and resources to shed light on the unique experience of being a black person in this country.
Tell us what you think. Do you think Black in America 2 did justice to the Black American experience?
