Black Women in the U.S.

A report released recently by Black Women’s Roundtable Public Policy Network (BWR), Black Women in the U.S., 2015, found that significant progress has been made since key historical markers however, there are many areas that remain in need of dire national attention and urgent action. The report was released during a legislative briefing at the historic headquarters of the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW). The event kicks off the BWR National Summit taking place over the next three days. “This report is a quick glimpse at where we are. We use this document as a roadmap during our BWR summit,” says Melanie L. Campbell, president and CEO National Coalition and convener, BWR. “Black women are a powerful force and we plan to demonstrate that power by working collaboratively and intentionally across issues to usher in a new set of progressive polices and leaders to champion our cause. In the coming days, we will unveil specific details about the implementation of the Power of the Sister Vote!” “We look at the tragedies and the triumphs surrounding Black Women’s lives across a variety of different indicators and areas of inquiry,” Adds Avis Jones-DeWeever, PhD, Incite Unlimited and editor of the report. “Black women have made progress since key historical markers such as the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Brown v. Board of Education, and the onset of the War on Poverty, but many areas remain that need urgent action.”
