    Disappointed in Black in America 2- Part I

     

    A multicultural crowd of about 20 students, faculty and staff at The University of Alabama was NOT impressed with the first installment of CNN's Black in America 2.    The biggest problem: cvercoverage of the "Journey for Change" in Africa and under-coverage of leaders in middle America who are making a difference for Blacks in America.  In general the stories in the first part of the documentary featuring "Leaders" depicted extremes in the African-American community rather the "regular Joe or Jane" in America who IS making a difference.

    We are expecting more complete reporting in the second installment Thursday, which focuses on Pioneers.
