When 'Black Women OWN the Conversation' Wins an Emmy? We All Win
WHY YOU SHOULD CARE
Because TV at its best can be about bringing people together.
By Carlos Watson & Samir Rao
Black Women OWN the Conversation won an Emmy! We are grateful to Oprah and the wonderful teams at both OZY and OWN, but more than anything this goes out to the 100 Black women who participated, including Dulcé Sloan, Angela Rye, Nadine Burke Harris and Ryan Michelle Bathé.
“I’m so humbled. Our show won! While this is an incredible honor, let’s not limit these dialogues to our TVs. It was so important for us to create space for these conversations that highlighted the unique and diverse experiences of Black women,” says host and OZY cofounder Carlos Watson. “More than ever we need to continue making space for these voices.”
If you’re interested in doing more, consider donating to a relevant social justice organization like Black Women’s Health Imperative, The Okra Project or BlackLivesMatter.
