Who Is Black In America?
In Response To: Re: Who Is Black In America ()
Did you watch CNN’s broadcast of “Who is Black in America?” with Soledad O’Brien?
The show focused on multi-racial students and their mentors, who have faced racial identity issues within the black community or their multi-racial households. O’Brien, whose parents are from Cuba and Australia, respectively, identifies herself as African American. She interviews two young girls, Nayo Jones and Becca Khalil, who have conflicting views of what it means to be African American.
