launches a sweeping on-air and digital initiative, CNN Presents: Black
in America. These documentaries, "The Black Woman and Family" and "The
Black Man," focus on fresh analysis from new voices about the real
lives behind the stereotypes, statistics and identity politics that
frequently frame the national Dialog about Black America.
Included is the story of Marvin Perkins, a black Mormon who talks
about his membership in the church and the ban against black men
having the priesthood.
Here is a preview of his interview.
The program airs Wednesday, July 23, 9 p.m. ET
