A Change Is Gonna Come

Hey Ya'll,

Once again time has flown and it's been a while since my last post. I'm sure you weren't checking daily for updates or anything, but it is my dream that one day people will be. I don't desire to be a popular blogger for I consider myself a journalist. I hope that I will be able to use this site for practice and possibly build a network through it. If I'm learning anything while majoring in the field of Communications, it's that it's not WHAT you know, it's WHO you know! I titled this post "A Change Is Gonna Come" because I truly believe that changes will be happening in my life. I hope you noticed and enjoyed the banner I put up. Also, check out my logo pictured above. Isn't it lovely? It's courtesy of Hilltop Consulting and I'm extremely thankful. I'm one step closer to being "official." Whatever that means...

I will be updating the site more often so stay tuned... I'm currently working on a research paper about the lack of African American families shown on primetime television. Let me know your thoughts. I think it's a brilliant topic and I look forward to doing the research! Do you think that there are any television shows that depict African Americans is a good light?


  1. Well Shonda Rimes has a few Black doctors but... yeah there are too few of us on TV. Especially if you count the number of shows we had 10, 15 years ago. And say what you want about UPN, but at least we were on.

  2. Who is Shonda Rimes? Is that on regular TV? Girl, I don't have cable... LoL.

    UPN was great, but now black people are extremely underrepresented in prime television. I've been researching and there have not really been any wholesome family show on TV since "The Bernie Mac Show" in 2006.Everybody Hates Chris" existed too, my bad. Of course now we have "The Cleveland Show" but that's animated. Anything else, i.e. "House of Payne" or "Lincoln Heights" comes on cable television.

    It's crazy...

  3. Shonda Rimes is the creator of Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice
