CNN reporter Soledad O’Brien is at it again with another special in her “Black in America” series. O’Brien’s latest report examines the Black church. “Black in America: Churched” debuts October 21.
The program looks at a range of issues the Black church faces and its continued significance in the Black community. The special kicked off with a report examining if the church was keeping Black women single. It goes on to look at homosexuality, and the church’s treatment of same-sex politics. The trailer for the special reveals that it will also highlight how the Black church is helping its congregation through the nation’s devastating recession.
But what do we really think about CNN’s “Black in America” series? What purpose does it serve exactly, and do we really think O’Brien’s reports—although often restricted to two hours—presents a holistic perspective of the complexity of Black America?
