Black and Missing Part. 3

A few years ago, TV One created the show “Find Our Missing.” The purpose of the show is to bring attention to the thousands of missing cases of black people across the nation:

“Craig Henry, director of programming and production for TV One, said cases involving missing black people are often overlooked because of stereotypes surrounding the black community. “I just think that the general belief about black people is that most of us live in impoverished conditions and crime is a regular part of our lives. When you hear about people who happen to be missing, we are a bit desensitized, unfairly so, to black people and crime,” Henry said.” http://inamerica.blogs.cnn.com/2012/01/19/tv-ones-find-our-missing-premiere-draws-new-tips/

The show is hosted by S. Epatha Merkerson(the fabulous actress from “Law & Order”).
