I really enjoyed working on this blog. I did not know what to expect when I first started, but I have learned a lot. Seeing that this has been a major topic of discussion within society, there are so many articles, blogs, and videos about this topic. I have included some great ones that I wanted to write about, but couldn’t due to the date requirement. Below you will find the links to these articles. I think they are worth looking in to. I also have questions for the purpose of encouraging discussion that would be great to consider when thinking about this topic critically.
In what ways does society portray the idea that black women don’t get married? Why is this done?
What stigmas and stereotypes play a role in shaping this idea? Which ones further perpetrate it?
How can this “crisis” be addressed? Can it be changed? Will it ever change?
