THE BLACK CHURCH: THIS IS OUR STORY, THIS IS OUR SONG—GOD AND RACE STILL DUKING IT OUT!
February 12, 2021
To tell the story of American religion is to tell a political story. A point made throughout THE BLACK CHURCH: THIS IS OUR STORY, THIS IS OUR SONG— an excellent series which surprised me because it told the truth and was not afraid to do so. It also helped the viewer understand that there is something deeper inside this religious community that lives and thrives inside a hidden code. ... read more »

‘How Did 12 Percent of Black Men vote for Trump?’
November 19, 2020
In Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign, 95 percent of Black male voters and 96 percent of Black women chose him, NBC News reported. Four years later, Black women’s support remained at 96 percent for Obama’s 2012 re-election, while Black men slid to 87 percent. In 2016, when the nominee was Hillary Clinton, Black men dropped further to 82 percent while Black women’s support for Clinton remained high at 94 percent. Biden came close to matching that this year, garnering the support of 91 percent of Black women. But 12 percent of Black men voted for Trump, according to exit polls. ... read more »

My Plan to Lift Every Voice in Black America
October 22, 2020
President Trump wants to paper over the living wound of racism. He’s issued Executive Orders and established a new national commission designed to whitewash our history—and deny the daily reality of being Black in America. He actively appeals to white supremacists and fans the flames of hatred and division in our country, because he thinks it benefits him politically. He ignores the most basic job of every president: the duty to care for all of us, not just those who voted for him. ... read more »

September 10, 2020
Our consortium of Black women leaders has disrupted the status quo of this election cycle and of society. This week, we have been reminded of the question you asked Black people during the 2016 election: “What do you have to lose?”  Our answer, evidenced by increasingly poor economic outcomes, high racial tensions and hate incidents, the coronavirus, and an overall lack of dignity and respect in the White House, is a lot.
