News You Can Use

NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams is presenting a week-long special on Black Women. The series (creatively titled) "African - American Women: Where They Stand," started yesterday and runs through Friday on the air and through Saturday online.

The installments cover:

  • Education
  • Friendships
  • Heart Disease
  • Interracial Relationships
  • The Election
I caught tonight's installment on breast cancer. It was brief but covered a lot of stuff I never knew. And the information isn't just pertinent to women of color. There is a lot to be learned on womens health and societal issues. NBC is also keeping it interactive with additional features only available online.
