NCBCP releases the Black Women's Roundtable 4th Annual Report
Black Women in the United States, 2017, is the Fourth Annual Report by the Black Women’s Roundtable (BWR) meant to provide an in-depth analysis of the needs and condition of Black women throughout the nation. This year's report, however, is positioned somewhat differently than previous publications. At the dawn of a new political era, we thought it wise to not just describe how Black women are faring, but instead, examine their challenges and needs through a prescriptive lens. As such, in this year’s report, we don’t merely highlight a variety of indicators related to the Black woman’s experience, instead we very purposefully lay out a path forward towards continued action on those issues that are most critical to our needs, even in the face of a very different political landscape. As such, this year’s report is focused around five pillars: Black Women’s Health & Humanity; Black Women and Education; Black Women’s Politics and Perspectives; Entrepreneurship & Technology; and finally, Challenges and Change Agents—Telling Our Stories.
Included herein are the voices of scholars, advocates and practitioners; each with deep expertise and involvement in the issue-areas covered throughout the report. What follows is well beyond theory. It is a practical sharing of not only where Black women are today, but how we move forward to create a better tomorrow.
