CNN's first Black in America program examined what it is really like to live as an African-American in the United States. A year later, the network drills deeper - and seeks solutions - with Black in America 2.
The first segment, "Today's Pioneers," focuses on adults, while the second "Tomorrow's Leaders," turns to younger African-Americans. "Today's Pioneers" shows a positive outlook on current lives of blacks in the U.S., while also diving into issues like marriage, jobs, and racism. Some of the statistics presented are troubling - for example, the low success rate for black marriages. On balance, though, the individuals appearing in the segment inspire and suggest there is hope for a better future in the problem areas.
"Tomorrow's Leaders" highlights organizations that help at-risk children find their way and become successful. The outcomes shown here, too, are inspiring.
Black in America 2 debuts on July 22 at 9 p.m., following President Obama's address on health care.
