Black America is a TV show on CUNY TV that profiles Black business leaders, activists, writers and artists to explore what it means to be black in America in the 2010s. The weekly half-hour program uses in-depth conversations to gauge this experience in a time of both turbulence and breakthroughs.
Emmy® Award-winning TV anchor and journalist Carol Jenkins hosts the series. Ms. Jenkins has a long broadcast history with Black public affairs shows, beginning as pioneering co-host of WNBC-TV’s Positively Black, one of the earliest New York City programs dedicated to the Black experience. Black America is co-produced by Audra D. West and Duane Ferguson. Robert Isaacson, CUNY TV’s Executive Director, serves as Executive Producer with Susan Iger and Gail R. Yancosek, CUNY TV Co-Executives in Charge of Production.
