CNN examines the African American experience

I don’t fully support CNN due to their right wing approach to journalism but this television documentary seems very compelling. They tackle some of the more poignant issues surrounding the African experience in America which mainstream media always seem to somehow miss. I personally think they should have called it “Beyond Shucking and Jiving” with our friendly neighborhood Brooklynite Spike Lee at the helm.

Now if we could only have someone produce something as comprehensive as this about the African Canadian experience……….maybe I need to head to the NFB (National Film Board).
