Talk Back: Black Girls Rock

In this talk back viewers respond to the “Black Girls Rock” celebration that aired on BET in November 2011. We reflect on the significance of a program that celebrates black women and girls who are leaders and change agents.  How do we reconcile these representations with the typical portrayals of women we are used to seeing in music videos on BET? And how do we as artists and engaged audiences contribute to a media landscape that reflects our diversity?

BET, can you show us how Black Girls Rock through your programming year round?

Thoughts? Questions? What do you want to say to Black Girls Rock? BET?
